Navision version 3.50 was the first version where Navigator was not the main name. Although still being called Navigator in Denmark, then Navision was now the primary name.
Navision was with these releases focused on making Navision run on even more database servers, than their own native database.
This version was designed as a cross platform system, introducing (beyond OS/2 and DOS), support for Unix and integration with other products.
Support for Unix version AIX
Support for HPUX Unix
SDK - developers Toolkit is introduced. This allows access to the Navision database from external applications using the C++ library
New features with this version:
And a few other powerful features. Otherwise pretty much a solid upgrade from 3.04. Possibly the last version of Navision that brought improvements over its predecessor, without introducing any new problems. For the first time Navision open up access to their otherwise "proprietary" database. The C++ libraries DLLs are exposed to developers, so that it is now possible to access the Database through C++ code.
Now with native support for Microsoft Windows NT. Running the old DOS extended version under NT, or the IBM OS/2 version in compatibility mode was no longer required.Navision 3.56 became the last character based version to be released in 1996.
Today, more than 20 years after it's release it's still being used by 1000's of companies world wide.
