Apps that will run standalone or synchronize on demand
Access to the mobile device for GPS, taking photos, and more
Powerful SQL Multi-tasking providing a better user experience
The new SQL Worker Objects in the DAMs will allow you to optimize server management by running long SELECT statements or other tasks in the background and on multiple threads, allowing the Omnis GUI to continue without interruption.
Dynamic “responsive” web apps in Omnis
A new set of properties for web and mobile forms as well as components will mean that your apps will become “responsive” — forms and components will resize and scale automatically depending on the type of device the app is running on. And, with the new “Subform sets” you will be able to create multiple subforms or small windows within the main browser window or frame which users will be able to pop up, move around and resize.
Printing in PDF will come as standard
And looking further ahead…
Following shortly after the Studio 6.0 release will be (you guessed it) version 6.1 which will support 64-bit processors. On the Mac platform, the SDK will be rebuilt using the Cocoa code base from Apple. These two features together will add speed and interactivity to the Omnis development environment and your deployed apps, while adding protection to your investment in Omnis technology well into the future.
