REALbasic provides a framework for developers who want to create cross-platform software for Mac OS X, Windows, and Linux. It can be used for the creation of utilities, and business software among other applications.
New in REALbasic 2007 Release 2 is the implementation of an incremental compiler (the development tool will only compile the parts of the project that have been modified since the last compilation); improving up to double the compilation speed according to REAL Software.
Improvements have also been made to the debugger, in which the values of a greater number of objects are now displayed allowing access and change of application and variable properties while the program is debugging. Lastly, RTF support has also been added.
