Excerpt of article text...
In December 2012 Real Studio 2012r2 shipped. No, it's not the big release with the new IDE and tons of new features we've been hearing about, but it is heavy on the bug fixes and there are some handy improvements and new capabilities. In particular, there's a new Crypto module, for creating better hashes, a new WebCanvas control for Web apps, the Web Control SDK for adding third party web controls, and some handy TextArea improvements for Mac Cocoa and Windows apps.
Some of the other improvements include faster remote debugging, support for SSL with PostgreSQL, and dynamic constants for Web apps (useful for multi-lingual Web apps). A complete list of the changes is available within the release notes that accompany the new version or on the Web (http://docs.realsoftware.com/index.php?title=ChangesforRealStudio2012_R2&oldid=43141).
