Terminal GUI allows remote work with Windows GUI (graphical) applications. Terminal console allows remote execution of the 32-bit console applications.
Terminal GUI and Console differs from previous Terminal versions/products. It allows execution of the arbitrary Windows applications not only Clipper or xHarbour ones. No changes to original application are required to run it remotely. There are special extention interfaces which allows better integration of Terminal GUI/Console with xHarbour.

|The new terminal client has been introduced into 188.8.131.52 version. Now, there is a possibility of using terminal client on PDAs with Pocket PC 2003/2003 SE or Windows CE .NET 4.2. Palmtop version of the terminal emulator (Mobile Te32) cooperates with 32-bit (xHarbour) applications only. It can communicate with the server using TCP/IP protocol via BT/GPRS, WiFi or ActiveSync. A possibility of font adjustment as well as display scrolling allow to run any xHarbour application in terminal architecture.

|Dedicated Delphi interface for Mediator becomes a reality!|
|We are glad to inform the dedicated Borland Delphi interface for Mediator is undergoing final site tests now. This interface consists of VCL components TMedConnection, TMedTable and TMedQuery which closely follow the interface of TDatabase, TTable and TQuery BDE components. Components can be used to access both Mediator (MEDNTX/MEDCDX) and xHarbour DBF files (DBFNTX/DBFCDX).|
Mediator components for Delphi are based upon xHarbour kernel. Apart from the above VCL components there are several low level classes which are used to access xHarbour kernel. Using xHarbour kernel as a foundation for Mediator components enables nearly 100% compatibility between DBF-based applications and Mediator-based applications.
The components can be very usefull for both Clipper/xHarbour and Delphi developers. For more information on this please see documentation.
The release of the components is planned for the March, 2005. Everybody interested in testing the software right now is encouraged to send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org - we will make it available through limited download.
