Trifox Announces Unicode Support
CAMPBELL, California, July 15, 1997 -- Trifox Inc., announced
today that its intention to add new data sources to the world's
most open accessware continues at full pace.
UNICODE becomes the latest target for VORTEX-supported networks and
enterprises with the newly released 16-bit UNICODE support, which also
permits the mixing of UNICODE and non-UNICODE components.
"After completing the UNICODE enhancement, we now understand why so many
other vendors have either given up or missed schedules for years," says
Niklas Back, Trifox CEO. "The fact that our core development team is
essentially the same one that implemented the original code for VORTEX
means that the UNICODE enhancement, not a trivial undertaking, has been
incorporated into the baseline code. Making the investment in adding
UNICODE to our baseline will allow us to support this new platform with
all our upgrades and enhancments."
Back also notes that, "In addition to our VORTEX product line, our GUItools
are also UNICODE-capable. This is very important to our global customers."
The new support, currently in beta, can be used
interchangeably with 16-bit
files, even across networks of different byte ordering machines. In addition,
existing applications and reports developed using Trifox's application
development suite, TRIMtools continue to run without modification.
"The real cost of application development is not the tools themselves, although
some vendors' pricing is way out of line, but rather the time and money spent
in training the developers and creating the applications and reports," says
Back. "By not obsoleting our customers' investments, we can provide them a
big lead over their competitors."
