Borland revives 'Turbo' for developer tools

Borland Software has brought back the Turbo product moniker with the introduction of language-specific developer tools.

The Turbo name had been prominent as part of the company's Turbo Pascal product. The revival features single-language versions of Borland Developer Studio, which is a development environment Microsoft Windows and .Net applications. The Turbo product set includes Turbo Delphi for Win32, Turbo Delphi for .Net, Turbo C++ and Turbo C#. The .Net and C# products support .Net and ASP.Net.

The Turbo products are being unveiled by the Developer Tools Group, which Borland intends to sell by September.

Versions will be available in two formats: A free, downloadable Turbo Explorer version for beginners, and the customisable Turbo Professional, which is designed to accommodate thousands of third-party tools, components and plug-ins.

With the new Turbo products, developers can build GUI, database, Web and Web services applications for Microsoft Windows.

Future Turbo products were expected to be released for other languages, such as now-popular scripting languages, when the tools group found a new home, vice-president of developer relations at Borland, Dave Intersimone, said.

Brother QL-820NWB Professional Label Printer

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
