Synergy DBL and Visual Studio Code

Some time ago a customer posted in the Synergy/DE Ideas forum suggesting that a Synergy DBL language plug-in should be created for the increasingly popular Visual Studio Code editor. Over course of the next few months the post received a significant number of votes, and we also started hearing the same request from others.

Later we heard from the original customer that they had started to define some basic language integration themselves, offered to share that initial code, and agreed that it could be open sourced.

At this time we are pleased to announce that initial support for DBL in VS Code is live! We have developed this functionality as an open source project on GitHub (https://github.com/Synergex/vscode-synergydbl) and welcome your feedback and your contributions.

If you just want to try the extension you can search for “Synergy” in the extension marketplace inside of VS Code, or download and install the VSIX from the GitHub Releases page. If you do try the extension out, and have questions or problems, please use the GitHub Issues page to let us know.

The initial scope of the extension is fairly limited, but we have been using the colorization locally for a while now and it makes a huge difference when you just need to do a quick edit to a source file. We are looking forward to seeing what everyone else has to contribute.


Synergy/DE 11 and REV11 licensing are released

We’re very pleased to announce the release of Synergy/DE 11. Version 11 delivers many features, including important security updates, exciting ISAM resilience features, and runtime performance improvements. It also includes new Synergy DBL and Visual Studio integration features. See our Synergy/DE 11 page for a full list of features.

Synergy/DE 11 also includes our new REV11 licensing, which automates your product key updates. REV11 licensing is used with Synergy/DE 11, and it also supports Synergy/DE 9.3 – 10.3 with a licensing upgrade package. See our REV11 licensing page for more information.

Many of the new features in Synergy/DE 11 were suggested on our Ideas site. We would like to thank everyone for their input, and we encourage you to continue to post, comment, and vote on that site to let us know what features are most important to you.

Be sure to review the new requirements before you upgrade to Synergy/DE 11. For example, version 11 doesn’t support Windows 7, Windows Server 2008 R2, or Visual Studio 2015.

We strongly encourage you to upgrade to Synergy/DE 11 for enhanced application security, resilience, and performance; a better developer experience; and a much easier process for managing product keys. Take a look, and let us know if you have any questions or if you need any assistance.
