With the release of Profound.js 5.0, we have changed the licensing strategy. In version 4.15.2 and earlier, you paid a license for connecting to your server running IBM i. However, we found that what our customers wanted most was the addition of Low-Code, REST APIs, and enhancements to the Rich Display framework. Therefore, we feel it is more straightforward to license for those components directly. This will help us provide the functionality our customers need as we move forward together.

Not too long ago, I was discussing the “movable columns” feature of Profound UI’s Subfile Grid widget with a customer. They liked this feature, but wondered how they could show totals under their subfile and have them move along with the column automatically.
I was given the interesting assignment of changing Profound UI so that any runtime messages would be available in any language chosen by the customer. I can definitely see why. Prior to this project, most of the messages that the product provided were in English, which is clearly not suitable for non-English speakers.
In version 4.6 of Profound UI we introduce our new mobile client that makes it dead simple to create powerful mobile apps. This feature is designed to make it easy for RPG programmers to write ILE RPG programs that run on IBM i, but send their screen output so that they look and feel like native mobile apps running on an Apple iOS or Android device.
I’ve always been a huge fan of RPG & DB2 Summit. It’s definitely one of the best conferences that I attend, and I attend a lot of conferences! In fact, I’ve participated in all twelve of the previous RPG & DB2 Summit conferences. However, the thirteenth one which was held in March 2013 had a good chance of being different. You see, I am still recovering from a serious spinal cord injury that I sustained in January, that has left me a paraplegic. That means that my wife and son will have to come to take care of me, and since they aren’t RPG developers, this conference might not be much fun for them. Furthermore, my colleague David Russo would be attending this conference, as an exhibitor, for the first time. If he didn’t enjoy it, I’d surely hear about it every day at work.
