Those of you who use Proparse, e.g., as a part of ProLint, may or may not be aware that Mike Fechner and Marian Edu extended the syntax which Proparse covers to include a number version 11.x features which were missing from the last regular version of Proparse.  This version can be found here:

More recently, John Green, the original developer of Proparse, has taken it upon himself to add some additional 11.x syntax support and fix a couple of interesting bugs.  You can find these versions here:

I have been adding new features to ABL2DB using Proparse to get information I could not get in any other way and am very grateful for these additions and fixes since they help keep a valuable tool current.

If any of you encounter issues, I encourage you to report them on the Proparse forum on OE Hive.

No one is getting paid to fix these things, but they certainly won't get fixed if they are not reported.

As rule going forward, I would say the latest version from whereever.  Currently that is .  It will have the most 11.x syntax and most bug fixes.  But, that isn't to say that Mike and Marian may not add things later.  Let's just hope they don't fork.

Assemblies is all you need for working with ABL.  The Java is irrelevant to that.  The source can be useful for figuring things out.

Note that there is a new release as of 4 days ago at
