Giorgio Stevanato Is any chance to get a DEMO of 2.0 (latest version)
on Fri, 22 Jul 2016 13:55:23 +0800
A colleague of mine has sent emails to Alaska asking for a demo of the latest 
compiler but so far no answer.
Is still somebody there?
How can we commit to buy a subscription if we cannot even try it?
Thanks

Giorgio

Boris,

unfortunately this page informs the visitor that "there is no demo 
version yet available. Please fill in the form anyway and press the 
"Create Account" button. We will inform you immediately when the demo is 
available." Even almost 2 years after publishing the 2.0 it looks like 
that Alaska is still not able to provide a demo.

I saw that, but was hoping that if one did in fact make the effort to enter 
their contact info, Alaska Software would be kind enough to send out a demo 
version promptly. That's what I would do!  As a matter of fact, I provide 
complete, fully functional demo versions of my products (SQLExpress and 
Xb2.NET) to anyone willing to enter an email address and downloading a ZIP 
file.

Don't understand why this is so difficult. Xbase++ is a fantastic product, 
but fumbling the ball like this does not make a great impression on new 
(or existing) customers.

As I mentioned a colleague of mine from our HK office has sent a message to the 
"info@alaska-software.com" account the 12th of July after creating the online 
account.
He received an answer form Peter the 22nd after a second email (pushing for the 
first...).
There is a green tab on Alaska page "Free Xbase++ trial"... Then on the linked 
page there is a note that says "there is no demo version yet available". This 
has been there for years so I'm guessing in order to get the demo we have to 
"push" a little the issue.
Today office is close, so I cannot verify with my colleague, but from a message 
I got yesterday evening looks like "something" is finally available for testing.

I honestly do not know why it is so hard to evaluate this thing. I've been 
working with Xbase a lot of years and I'm still using 1.90.331 without too much 
troubles. If we get a product that can fix the few issues we have with 1.9 we 
will be happy to pay for the new version/subscription. Does it make sense?

Regards

Giorgio
