Huntington Beach, California - December 16, 2007 - ProVUE Development announces the release of Panorama 5.5, a major revision to our high performance RAM based database program. Major new features in this version include:

* Enhanced Live Clairvoyance search wizard with bookmarks and formula search (allows "spotlight" style instant searching of databases by field, phonetically, or using a boolean formula).

* Directly exchange data between databases and Microsoft Excel spreadsheets.

* Import financial data in the QIF, OFX and QFX formats used by Quicken and most financial institutions.

* Embed programs using AppleScript, Shell scripts, Perl, Ruby, Python and PHP directly into Panorama programs. This opens up the huge (and generally free) code libraries available for these alternate languages for use within Panorama, including tools for manipulating complex numbers and matrices, pattern matching, statistical calculations, linear equations, image manipulation, sql database access, cryptographic services, xml parsing and various internet protocols including dns, ftp, smtp, pop3, imap, telnet, ssh, bittorrent, soap and low level tcp/udp access.

* Easily import images into databases with drag and drop.

* Add zoomable maps to any database with a single line of code.

* Automatically convert forms & reports into PDF format.

* Recent Database wizard helps keep databases organized and instantly available.

* Multitude of new programming features, including new debugging tools and user programmable functions.

* All new "Panorama Essentials" book available in PDF format (in addition to the Panorama Handbook, Tutorial, and other documentation).

Panorama 5.5 is 100% compatible with databases created with all previous versions of Panorama. A complete description of all the new features in Panorama 5.5 is available at:
