 PDox 4.5 to PDox 5.0
Just saw where Borland just dropped the price on Paradox 5.0.
I am currently using version 4.5 and would like some feedback
on the new version.

1. How are the bugs compared do version 4.5 (there has to be
some)???
2. How is the speed compared to version 4.5???
3. How much disk space is taken up???
4. Is it worth it???

Thanks for the feedback.

 PDox 4.5 to PDox 5.0

Reminder: SPECIFY VERSION!  DOS version still exists!

: 1. How are the bugs compared do version 4.5 (there has to be
: some)???

There's query bug, and some people can't get experts to work.  Otherwise
it's a bit more stable than 4.5 or 1.0.

: 2. How is the speed compared to version 4.5???

It is faster, esp. queries.  Not a dramatic increase, but noticeable.

: 3. How much disk space is taken up???

About the same, plsu a couple megs to the coaches and experts and the
greatly expanded helpfile.  Total, about 15 megs.

: 4. Is it worth it???

Yes, just don't throw away your old version yet.

On the whole I'd say fewer and different. Nothing I'd consider drastically
bad.

Faster, but not that noticeable in my apps.

Oh, some. Perhaps the same as 4.5, but includes Workgroup, experts and
coaches, so perhaps a little more.

YES! Just wish they'd put it out at $99 originally, instead of "punishing"
early adopters with the higher price.

cheers,

I disagree.  I think loading of forms and libraries shows a dramatic
increase.  For example, a startup form we were using which displayed for
several seconds (under v4.5) while we did other housekeeping, primarly opening
other forms and libs, now displays and clears so quickly you can barely see
it.
