Excerpt of article text...

Just last time I wrote about Real Studio 2011 Release 2 being available with many changes for web edition. Hot on its heels, Release 3 is now available. This release fixes several web edition problems that cropped up in Release 2.

Notable Changes

A pretty major bug with Release 2 was that CGI web edition apps could not be deployed on Mac OS X servers. I had not noticed this because I use Linux for my web servers, but the ability to deploy to Mac OS X is a key feature of web edition and it is good to see that this was addressed quickly.

A new feature in Release 2 was the addition of a launch screen that was displayed while your web application was loading. Although many people thought the launch screen was a good idea (myself included), there were others who felt that having a launch screen made web edition less useful for web site development. Of course, whether you should use web edition for web site development is another topic of debate.

Regardless, in Release 3, the loading screen is now optional. You can specify a value in the App.LaunchMessageDelay property to indicate when or if a launch screen should appear:

-1 = Never show the launch screen.
