Ispirer Toolkit Improvements, October 2023

In the dynamic landscape of technology, the pursuit of perfection is a perpetual journey. Acknowledging that constant development is the key to staying at the forefront, we are thrilled to share an exciting update of Ispirer Toolkit with our valued users. Last month marked another significant stride in our commitment to excellence, as we dedicated ourselves to enhancing the core functionalities of our product. The result? A tool that is now not just better but faster and more convenient than before. Our relentless dedication to improvement is evident in the integration of a plethora of new conversion rules, a testament to our unwavering mission to elevate the quality of conversion for our customers.

This time we’ve paid much attention to multiprocess conversion from Pascal to Java. It is a well known fact that multiprocess conversion offers a speed boost by running multiеthreaded conversions concurrently, ensuring quicker transformation.
