SB5 Beta 5.0.939 is released.

We have recompiled SetupBuilder 5 with Clarion 6.1 Production Release (Hotfix 9029) and had to make some important internal modifications. We decided to make one more "Open Beta" for SetupBuilder 5 available.

Please let me know if the recompile causes any IDE instability!

Note: This is really the last "Open Beta" for SetupBuilder 5. The next SB5 beta comes with "web update" support and will only be available to registered SetupBuilder customers. We'll send out special announcements to all beta testers next week.

If you buy SetupBuilder now you can still SAVE up to 25%!

Buy SetupBuilder 4 Standard or Web Edition and get SetupBuilder 5 Professional ($249 value) or Developer ($399 value) FREE. The Professional Edition replaces SetupBuilder 4 Standard Edition and Developer Edition replaces SetupBuilder 4 Web Edition.
