DataFlex 2016/18.2 is released and available for download.
This latest version builds upon the wealth of mobile, web and Windows feature enhancements implemented in version 2015/18.1 by rapidly responding to developers suggestions for functional refinements and operational improvements. In addition, a large investment has been made in fixing bugs from prior revisions to improve developers productivity and overall product stability and performance.
In DataFlex 2015/18.1, we added an extensive array of new features and enhancements in the product core and for mobile, web and Windows apps. That large scope of change leads to opportunities for incremental features, more documentation and suggestions for refinements from the people that use the product every day. With DataFlex 2016/18.2, we have responded quickly with high level of product polish while still providing an almost transparent upgrade between 18.1 and 18.2, says Data Access Worldwide CTO John Tuohy.

Regarding bug fixes, John says, Our main goal with this release is to address bugs from several prior revisions, include as many suggestions from developers as possible, and, specifically, to maintain compatibility with DataFlex 18.1 to make sure that migration to 18.2 is easy. If you are now developing in DataFlex 18.1, you will absolutely want to migrate up to 18.2.
