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.

Airman on Amazon
Airman running on my actual iPhone.
Wow, did I ever have a great weekend! I was able to help out a friend
of mine Greg Winfield who owns Volairus - the home of the famous AIRMAN
PowerBuilder application. You might remember in the days of PocketBuilder,
