EDINBURGH (April. 8) – The world’s easiest programming tool received a major update today with the release of Revolution 3.5. The new version includes a brand new Data Grid object, allowing flexible and professional presentation of any kind of data or layout. The company also added object-oriented behaviors allowing developers to greatly enhance the speed and maintainability of their code.
