PowerBuilder 15 release and released instead PowerBuilder version 12.6. The
product announcement was made by PB product manager Sue Dunnell on the SAP
website (click here).
The new features of PB 12.6 are mainly focused on PowerBuilder Classic.

of mine Greg Winfield who owns Volairus - the home of the famous AIRMAN
PowerBuilder application. You might remember in the days of PocketBuilder,
