Franz, Inc. Announces Franz Allegro CL 8.0 with AllegroCache, Persistent AI Built-in, All the Way DownTM

Oakland, CA , January 2, 2006: Franz, Inc. today announced shipping of Allegro CLΠ8.0, with AllegroCache, its new highly scalable and super fast object database, an IDE for the Linux platform (identical to its Windows IDE), IPv6, two new 64-bit platforms (Mac OS X and Solaris Opteron/AMD64) and many other major improvements. AllegroCache provides 64-bit real-time data caching on the application memory to achieve very high transaction throughput by applications over as large a data set as necessary, while maintaining ACID compliance.

Allegro CL 8.0 is a very significant upgrade to its cross-platform (17 platforms) application development environment. For building and deploying intelligent, flexible, scalable and persistent web applications, no other tool comes close to Allegro CL 8.0.

Using Allegro CL 8.0, developers can create programs ranging from high-performing e-commerce sites to sophisticated business intelligence applications. "As the demand for faster, more intelligent, and scalable applications increases, modern Lisp developers now have the best tool they need to get their products to market on-time and on-budget," said Fritz Kunze, CEO of Franz. That is why the wing design of Airbus' new Super Jumbo, the scheduler for the Hubble Telescope and the Department of Defense's NSA all utilize Allegro CL as their development tool of choice.
