Volume 5 No. 8 Community News & Information October 11, 2001

In this Issue:

IP RELEASE TARGETED FOR OCTOBER BETA RELEASE

NPL CELEBRATES 17 YEAR ANNIVERSARY!

IP RELEASE TARGETED FOR OCTOBER BETA RELEASE

That's correct. Niakwa is currently in the process of aggressive in-depth Alpha Testing of the new IP security, and it's looking very good! In fact, Beta Test invitations were sent to selected Gold Resellers and we expect to fulfill those Beta shipments this month.

NPL Release 5.1 is a significant update! First and foremost, Release 5.1 introduces a new security mechanism for Windows NT/2000 Servers. This new security mechanism, Protocol Independence, will throw off the chains of dependence on NetBIOS. More specifically, it will operate as an NT service, and will not rely on a particular protocol (except IP at the time of installation.)

This revised RunTime security represents a radical change from the current installation mechanism because it must be able to accommodate both IP and Novell/NetBIOS set-ups, with the ability to switch between the two set-ups. It has been a major goal to make the RunTime set-up as Installer friendly as possible.

Other more minor enhancements have also been made, such as the availability of anywhere/anytime copy/paste inside the Windows RunTime.

Just a reminder, don't forget to respond to the Beta Invitation letter no later than this Friday, October 12th. If you did not receive a Beta Invitation letter, but would like to be considered as a test candidate, please email sales@niakwa.com, or speak with Cyndee Philyaw at (847) 816-7400, x105.


NPL CELEBRATES 17 YEAR ANNIVERSARY!

Another, that's correct! Hard to believe so much time has passed. NPL continues to evolve as a language since its roots from the Wang 2200/CS in 1984.

The success of the language is strongly due to the continual feedback and ever evolving skills of the VAR channel, including our valued Beta testers.

As always, many vertical markets are served by NPL based application software. Today NPL VARs flourish in such varied vertical markets as engineering, investment management, fuel management, fire safety, lumber and concrete, radio station management and even Cable TV to name just a few.

Again, we wish to thank all of our valued customers for their support and dedication to keeping the NPL language a powerful and growing development tool.
