Sybase subsidiary iAnywhere has announced the release of a new version of its SQL Anywhere database.
Sybase boosted its subsidiary earlier this month with the $71.3m (£40.3m) acquisition of mobile software firm Extended Systems, which will be integrated into iAnywhere.
The new release, SQL Anywhere 10, includes more than 200 new features. Enhancements to database server performance include snapshot isolation, parallel backups and additional indexing methods, while improved data protection measures include built-in data mirroring and extra security.
The new release also offers developer productivity resources, with tools for performance analysis and application profiling, .net 2.0 support, tight integration with Microsoft Visual Studio 2005 and support for Symbian devices.
The software also includes new graphical administration tools for setting up and deploying service oriented architectures, message management and monitoring, and mobile web services.
The developer edition of the new SQL Anywhere 10 will be available for free download within 45 days.
