Tabbed Code Editor
The PowerBuilder IDE has a new tabbed layout that provides more screen real estate and makes it easier to work on multiple objects.
Jump to Objects
Select an object reference within any declaration or code segment and instantly "Jump" to the referenced object class (via its related painter).
Quick Code Search
Navigate to the related script by using search "expressions" from the search dialogue in the system tree. Filtering has also been provided in various object painters, such as SaveAs and Select Tables dialogues.
Customized UI Themes faster
The style of the base window/user object will automatically apply to descendent windows/user objects without extra style definition. You can automatically apply the style to the same type of controls in a user object and window.
Two-Way TLS Authentication
Both the server and the client can authenticate each other, allowing connections only from authorized users. Two-way TLS authentication is supported for all HTTP requests, including requesting security tokens and invoking REST Web APIs.
HTTP Protocol Upgrade
The latest HTTP/2 and TLS 1.3 protocols offer better security and performance. These protocols are supported for all HTTP requests, including requesting security tokens and invoking REST Web APIs.
The PowerBuilder IDE and runtime now support Windows 11 (as well as Windows 10).
SQL Server users can upgrade to the new OLE DB Driver version 19, Oracle users can upgrade to Oracle 21c, and Informix 14 is also supported.
