|10th June 2018
week Fred released the first beta version of PB5.70. To their most
important innovations belong the support of the
"Qt" sub-system on Linux, "DPI aware" support on Windows and many new
3D commands (OGRE). More informations and the complete list of
functions in the related thread of the English PB forum.

GFX Wizzard BF now hosted on PureArea.net - PureBasic 5.70 on the way and PureVisionXP extension for SpiderBasic available!
I'm proud to announce, that the awesome
GFX package for PureBasic "GFX_Wizzard_BF" by Werner 'walbus' Albus is
now available on PureArea.net.
|While it was continuously developed
during the last 1.5 years, it's now finished for the current PB5.62
It has an impressive function set (completely coded in PB itself!) - just to name a few:
- hundreds of functions to create
fantastic GFX effects, sprites with alpha-blending, flicker-free
animations (also on Canvas gadgets)
- enhanced GIF handling functions
- output the graphics whereever you want (Canvas, Image, Sprite, Screen)
- use and combine functions for rotating, mirroring, recoloring, texturing, resizing, scrolling, etc.
- powerful Sprite editor tool
- create Sprite and CSS sheets
- all available as PB module (source-code), with many examples, running on all three OS (Win, MacOS, Linux)
PureBasic currently stays at version 5.62 (latest feature set of v5.60
and following bug-fixes) and PB's sister product for mobile development
SpiderBasic reached version 2.2 now, rumours say that a new PB version
is on the way. I can't tell you, when PB5.70 will arrive (you know:
"when it's done..."), but stay tuned... :-)
professional GUI designer PureVisionXP is also regularly updated by
ReelMedia and just got a new extension module to create SpiderBasic
GUI's too. Like all SpiderBasic and PureBasic versions (including business and eductional licences) you can
order it here - just take a look on my updated order site!
|My own project (working
title 'GeoWorld') grows well, I invest all my free time and hope to
have a first beta later this year. Stay tuned!
On the right you can see an updated screenshot of the loading screen...
And here another view on my self-written editor tool...
(all done in PureBasic)

PureBasic 20th Anniversary & new version 2.2 of SpiderBasic
recently celebrated a great anniversary - 20 years of continuous
development & always free updates! Read more in the PureBasic-Teamblog!
we could only speculate about the improvements of the next PureBasic
for now (see Fred's famous saying 'When it's done...'), occur bug-fix
updates on the current versions at this time - currently there are
v5.62 and v.5.46 LTS.
The sister product SpiderBasic reached the version 2.20 with many improvements (many new libraries and InApp Purchase Support).
It's not the
time yet for a beta release, but my own PureBasic project 'GeoWorld'
(cross-platform for Windows and MacOS!) is also progressing well. For
the creation of the GFX effects the PureBasic graphics package
"BucketFill advanced" served well - for more informations and source
code see the topic in english PB forum.

My remaining time I put completely in 'GeoWorld' (working title) - so there will be not much news here in the next time, sorry!
The ordering support für PureBasic & SpiderBasic and PureVisionXP continues as usual of course :)
|17th March 2017
PureBasic 5.60 and 5.51/5.44 LTS released -
sister product SpiderBasic v2 available!
While SpiderBasic is already available since December in the massively extended version 2.00 (e.g. now with iOS and Android app support!), also PureBasic got several updates during last months.
In the new version 5.60 many, partly already long time existing, user wishes were fulfilled. See the complete 'News' announcement or in the updated Online-manual.
The fact, that you can easily
realize your own projects with PureBasic, I want to show you with the
following screenshots of my 'GeoWorld' (working title) project. This
one takes my entire free time and it should be released this year
in a first (beta-) version if possible:
||GeoWorld - About window &
Country info with flag
|GeoWorld - Country &
|GeoWorld - City info
|GeoWorld on MacOS - Recordlists & City info
and many others benefit at this purposes from the help of the active
PureBasic community. Here I would like to present three 'includes',
which are very useful for me in GeoWorld or related tools:
- PBMap - OpenStreetMap in a CanvasGadget
- DynamicDialogs - easy creating of dialogs/GUIs
- VectorIcons - create vector-based icons 'on-the-fly'
The purchase of PureBasic licences (as well PureVision and
SpiderBasic) is possible unchanged, on request also via PayPal - pay attention to the informations here!
|30th October 2016
PureBasic 5.50 and 5.43 LTS released
- sister product SpiderBasic nearly reaches v2!
much news on PureArea.net due to my on-going problem with very limited
time and concentration on my own PureBasic project "GeoWorld" (working
title, may change due to licence rights later...). Of course I'm still selling PureBasic licences (PureVision and SpiderBasic too) - so the informations here are still valid!
PureBasic itself is of course still alive and reached the v5.50
this year. While the 3D side was improved again (e.g. with a Vehicle
library), it got several further improvements, and the most important
change: PureBasic is now "Unicode-only" with PB5.50+
with this version PureBasic always compiles source code into Unicode programs.
|Myself I switched my project development into Unicode mode too - and it was
easier than I thought, and now my project can display special chars
If you want to stay with ASCII development you can still use the LTS version of PureBasic, which was updated (only bug-fixes, no new functions) to v5.43.
For creating well-designed and flexible GUI's in PureBasic I strongly suggest PB's dialog library and the free DynamicDialogs framework. What can be done with it, you can see here (very complex editor for my project).
Currently Fred is concentrating on finishing the v2.0 of PureBasic's sister product SpiderBasic - making possible powerful web development.
