4D just released version 17. The most eye-catching feature set of 4D v17 is ORDA: Object Relational Data Access. This is really something new (and unique in the world of databases) and will allow us to “play” with data in new and unprecedented ways. ORDA is so powerful that it will take time to explore its possibilities until we can start implementing it to real world applications. It’s great to see that 4D keeps introducing progressive technology helping us to develop even better applications for our customers.
