Full text of article...

It feels like ages since we last published an issue, though much of that feeling is probably all the chaos that accompanies the end of the year holiday crunch. But we're back!

As you're probably aware, we delayed this issue to January so that now we're properly aligned with the calendar. This means that all of year 11 will be in 2013, and issues line up better with the months (Jan/Feb = 1, March/April = 2, May/June = 3, July/Aug = 4, Sep/Oct = 5, Nov/Dec = 6). This issue is 11.1, the start of year 11 of RSD--which is going to be our best ever. (Right?)

There are so many exciting things happening this year, such as the new Real Studio IDE, Real World 2013, and much more. Stay tuned!

In This Issue

In our biggest issue ever (92 pages), we've got a whopping five features. There's an interview with the man behind the Monkeybread plugins, Christian Schmitz, Richard Duke writes about the recent Real Studio conference in Birmingham, and Daniel Gross is back with more functional programming. I explore some of the new features of RS2012r2, released a few weeks ago, and I also write about how to generate PDFs from within Real Studio using a neat command-line tool.

In our columns, I explain how to trick users into thinking your program is faster than it is in Beginner's Corner, while Paul updates us on the latest 2012r2 news, Bob discusses the value of public speaking, and Craig covers SQL tables.
