After months of hard work we are proud to publish the first public stable release of the new generation of DecSoft HTML Compiler. We hope this journey just begin and we can enhance this product with a lot of future releases. Below we want to refer some of the differences between the previous generation of the product and the new generation of DecSoft HTML Compiler. Enjoy it!
1º Say good bye to the venerable Microsoft Internet Explorer WebView and say welcome to the modern Microsoft Edge WebView2 based in Edge Chromium. The DecSoft HTML Compiler generated apps continue to be running standalone, with the only dependency of the Microsoft Edge WebView2 Runtime, and, the ability to install it if it's missing in the user's computer and you wanted to do it from the app itself.
2º Say also good bye to previous limitations, for example, in order to make AJAX request to your app's local files, play local audios and local videos, etc. With the new DecSoft HTML Compiler all of these is possible, and, for example, applications created by DecSoft App Builder can perfectly be compiled using the new DecSoft HTML Compiler and run like a charm.
3º Like the current generation of DecSoft App Builder, the new DecSoft HTML Compiler will be offered for both Microsoft Windows 32 and 64 bits. Additionally, the new DecSoft HTML Compiler can compile apps into executables for Microsoft Windows 32 and 64 bits (not only for 32 bits like now): it's even possible to create executables for Microsoft Windows 64 bits from Microsoft Windows 32 bits.
4º The new DecSoft HTML Compiler has been written from the scratch, applying the experience that we get while developing the current DecSoft App Builder. This have lot of beneficts, just to mention some of them, now it's possible to work with various HTML apps at the same time in the program, we can now cancel the compilation of an app, we avoid modal dialogs always that it's possible and many, many more characteristics.
So we are very excited with this new project, because the ability to compile DecSoft App Builder created apps using DecSoft HTML Compiler, because the use of the new Microsoft Edge WebView2 based in Edge Chromium. However, the new DecSoft HTML Compiler wanted to continue offering the features that make to the current DecSoft HTML Compiler a good product:
1º Your app's files are never extrated into the user computer. The generated app's executables (now for both Windows 32 and 64 bits) is the only file that your users needed to run your app, no other dependency is required. You can continue using dozens of different GUI themes in your app's executables. In few words, we wanted to maintain the best that the current DecSoft HTML Compiler can offer right now.
That's all for this post! I hope you find the new DecSoft HTML Compiler useful to you and your projects. Feel free to download it and try it anytime you needed. Then please, consider to purchasing one orm ore licenses of the product if you find it useful to you.
