This file contains plug-ins and programming information for supporting the "Rebound!" application crash monitoring technology found in our Kick-off!, PowerKey Pro 650 and Rebound! products.

It includes plug-ins for 4th Dimension and WebSTAR (and compatible) servers, and complete documentation and sample code developers can use to add support to their applications.

Version 1.1 adds example AppleScripts to implement Rebound! Timers for applications without direct support, and a REALbasic class to easily implement Rebound! Timers in REALbasic applications. Version 1.1.1 fixes a minor bug in the W*API plug-in which caused WebSTAR to log a warning message (but otherwise worked just fine).
