PowerBuilder returns from the dead...

Not sure how I missed it when it was first released.  Or perhaps my age is showing and I just forgot I saw it earlier.  In any event, it's an IDC report reviewing the history of PowerBuilder and commenting on the .Net direction incorporated into the last few releases.  Of particular interest for people using the product since the early days, it includes the release date for every major version back to 1.0.

And an extract utility

Universal Extractor. It's particularly useful for extracting files out of the custom CAB format that Installshield uses (and which PowerBuilder setup files are generated in).

Some cool PBL related utilities

I just stumbled across this site, although it's been out there for at least a few years. He's got some utilities that do ORCA like operations without requiring the use of ORCA. There's also a utility for setting the background color of command buttons.

Some good news, and some bad news
