    Now available, a new beta of App Wrapper 3.9.1 to solve the new Mac App Store "LSHanderRank" requirement.


    App Wrapper upgrade plans are part of the OmegaBundle, so if you're considering renewing or first time buying, then please check out http://www.omegabundle.net/

    • Rewritten Apple Submission account system.
    • Modified the code sign checks.
    • Added more checking throughout the Notarization process to confirm each step is verified.
    • Fixed a problem whereby Sparkle's AutoUpdater application wasn't being code signed.
    • Modified it's deletion routine to avoid problems when iCloud Backup is enabled.
    • Modified the Inherited Entitlements to prevent a problem from occurring that could get your app rejected.
    • Now enforces "Secure Timestamps".
    • Adds verification that the application is not in the Trash to start with or moved to the trash during wrapping.
    • Added the option to add "LSHandlerRank" values to the document types.

    There are many Xojo developers that have settled on using SQLite for internal storage, and the Paradigma Team is okay with that. So okay with that, that we created a scalable Valentina SQLite Server and incorporated into Valentina Server. This makes it very easy to scale up your SQLite based application to a powerful client-server solution.

    In Omegabundle for Xojo 2019, you get a copy of Valentina Server (reg price $1,499.95 ) with your purchase.

    But what about the ultra fast ValentinaDB Server , one of several servers incorporated into Valentina Server? What makes it so special? Here is one feature requested by ValentinaDB developers that frequently worked with MS SQL Server.

    Check out the MERGE Statement , something not supported by many competing database servers. It does the combined work of insert, update, and delete to merge and combine the contents of tables.
