Enable 6 beta released!
Posted by Gian Luca De Bonis on 03 March 2015 01:18 AM

After a very long gestation, due mainly to the 64 bits deployment and to the integration of the "Enable Tools" (Enable, Customization Studio, Reporting Studio), we have just released the first drop of Enable 6 (

This version uses the new engine 2015021 that has the following features:

  • supports compression – when the ENA is saved with Enable Author it will be automatically compressed (and decompressed on the fly, in memory, upon opening)
  • supports PB 9 to 12.6 (and Appeon web as usual)
  • supports the new ENA format, that contains reports and repository tables (requires Reporting Studio to edit them)
  • has a new simplified structure
  • supports 64 bits deployment

Other than the engine, the tools have the following features:

  • Support for XLSX format for export/import translations
  • Simplified activation key process, with on-line processing (e-mail activation will be available)
  • New Designer, with several fixes and improvements
  • Support for longer context names

This version is to be considered beta but is supported and can be used in production. It's reserved to users with Premium Support.

We expect to release the GA later on this month.

See the download section for the download link - remember to login first, as the build is reserved to Premium Support customers.
