The enhancements offered in Visual Studio 2010 allow AVR 10 to stand as ASNA's most polished .NET-based product to date.

ASNA, a BluePhoenix company, and a Microsoft Visual Studio Industry Partner, has announced it plans to ship ASNA Visual RPG 10 (AVR) in July. This version of Asna Visual RPG works with Microsoft Visual Studio 2010.

AVR is a .NET-based RPG compiler that works from within Visual Studio just as VB.NET and C# do. AVR compiles to native MSIL code and supports intrinsic Visual Studio features such as its Windows and Web designers, Intellisense, its debugger, and its deployment tools. Visual Studio 2010 offers many enhancements and features, such as improved multi-monitor support, new debugging features, and a new-from-the-ground-up code editor.

“We’re very excited about AVR 10," says Eduardo Ross, ASNA vice president of Technology. "The refinements and enhancements offered by Visual Studio 2010 make AVR 10 our most polished, exciting .NET-based product yet." He said that with AVR 10, ASNA will ship the ASNA DataGate Server Explorer, a DataGate database server management and administrative suite, which is tightly integrated into Visual Studio 2010. "AVR 10 provides a single integrated environment for all of your development needs,” says Ross.

ASNA’s DataGate Server Explorer works from within Visual Studio 2010 to let developers work with DataGate database connections, libraries, files, and objects. Everything the developer needs for database-related work is offered directly within the DataGate Server Explorer—it is a replacement for the free-standing ASNA Database Manager that shipped with previous versions of AVR.

In additional to its tight integration with Visual Studio 2010, ASNA also announced that AVR 10 will work with the Microsoft Visual Studio Shell. For AVR 10 developers who don’t need VB.NET or C#, this offers a no-cost way to acquire the necessary host shell for AVR 10.

AVR 10 is a free upgrade for licensed users of AVR 9.x. It requires either Visual Studio 2010 or the Microsoft Visual Studio Shell.
