NetRexx 4.01 GA is released

rvjansen
Dear NetRexx users,

today, on the 42nd anniversary of the Rexx Language, NetRexx 4.01 GA has been released. A big Thank You goes out to Jeff Hennick and Marc Remes, who have contributed countless fixes, additions and improvements.

NetRexx 4.01 beta releases already provided complete compatibility with the JPMS (Java Platform Module System), the base for all future JVM releases. This is a significant step in the history of NetRexx, which makes it a viable environment for program development for years to come.

The GA release adds two Classic Rexx compatible elements: an ADDRESS statement, which enables addressing of native external programs and command processors. The other one is a Classic Rexx compatible set of Date() and Time() functions in the NetRexx runtime package.

The NetRexx 4.01 GA package is downloadble, as of now, from netrexx.org, as always. Also, the documentation has been refreshed with a better readable font for screens, updated and better readable program examples, and a large number of corrections.

We wish you lots of NetRexx programming enjoyment with this new release, on every new JVM release you choose. Please report any issues on this mailing list.

best regards,

René.

Also netrexx.org is very nice, including the page you get when clicking on "Examples"! Also very nice, that on the homepage the time in Hursley is given with qtime! :) The only thing I have not found on the website was a direct link to the place where the source code of NetRexx can be obtained ... ---rony P.S.: A minor thing in the footer (copyright date range):

Ad downloading source code: there is a link on the home page at the very bottom.

Maybe a link to the Sourceforge code branch (where the git command is shown) could be given at the
Download page (https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=http-3A__netrexx.org_downloads.nsp&d=DwICaQ&c=jf_iaSHvJObTbx-siA1ZOg&r=_6rXNpPJ1fYV-3bV1za02NiR4PUelvicfHXwtnTXpXE&m=vpRWTRkWHS8W-ZPNh9AfmB6l-AqzVpBll2DEoAZHzHU&s=WX_jWoLzL1_vZ4KVDe_VxR0XyezZMq7i8A2Unh0dOUs&e= ) in addition?
