No secrets... we develop code with our own toolkit, and this toolkit calls low-level functions in the respective operating system. We just need very basic function calls (paint a pixel here, a rect there, wait on mouse input etc.). But if you develop apps from scratch, you don't want that ultra-low ...

Yes, TextMaker and PlanMaker use pure Xlib calls. If you don't have a very good reason (cross-platform portability), DON'T go that route. It's immensely more work than using Qt or GTK or any other pre-made toolkit.

Have a look at KDevelop, read quite a few people are raving about it.

Re: Corel Draw substitute

I know this is extremely challenging. But there is no real / good SVG editor for Linux. And Corel Draw keeps coming with more unstable versions supporting less and less platforms (they pulled out of Windows 98 / ME / NT and Mac OS) Because softmaker's application are all pretty cute shiny lightweig...

Will we be able to redistribute forms and applications to others if we develop forms and applications with DataMaker (2004)? I mean as a runtime engine as in the case of Access and Paradox. Or do we have to pay royalty for each launcher. Will DataMaker (2004) support Linux and PostGreSQL? Currently...

Good question. Presentation graphics is not an announced product, and that's about all I can say at this point. :wink:

DataMaker will work with any reasonably complete ODBC driver. If you have MyODBC, this combo should indeed work.

At first we need to see how well the Zaurus version works. If everything is fine we will try to do a Palm version, too, but it is not for sure that a Palm version will be released at all. :| Correction: We are still working on the Palm version, but right now our top priority is the AMD Personal Int...

If you have TextMaker and PlanMaker, you have all the current pieces of SoftMaker Office 2004. As soon as there are newer versions of SoftMaker Office, there always will be the same upgrade pricing and procedure, regardless of whether you bought TextMaker and PlanMaker independently or as a part of ...

Everything's possible, of course, but Symbian will not be in the foreseeable future. First, we have to complete our Palm version, then we can think about other systems. Don't hold your breath.

Unfortunately no. EPOC-based Psions are basically dead with even Psion Teklogix having moved to Windows CE.

All these feature will indeed be in TextMaker 2004. The visible grid won't be just dots but a real grid, though.
