4D has updated its Web and database development tool.

4D v6.8.1, the latest version of the app, features improved rendering and interface programming options, plus SSL, PPP and IMAP4 protocol support to users of 4D 6.8 applications.

The download is available free to registered users of 4D v6.8.

Brendan Coveney, president and CEO of 4D, said: "As part of our commitment to the 4D developer community, we're dedicated to providing updates with the capabilities developers need most.

"Our developers requested improved interface enhancements and custom printing features that we're pleased to provide without waiting for a major release. We're also excited about the powerful development potential we've created with the protocol integration in 4D v6.8.1."
