APLNow LLC (formerly known as APL2000, which is retained as a service mark for its products) is the vendor of APL+Win. In addition to APL+Win, APLNow developed the discontinued VisualAPL and is now working on APL64, a 64-bit successor to APL+Win. After Financial Reporting Software (soon to be LEX2000, after its main product) bought the rights to APL products including APL*PLUS/WIN from Manugistics (formerly STSC) in 1995, it was formed as a subsidiary to sell these products. LEX2000 was purchased by Cognos in 1999, and in 2005 APL2000's assets were purchased by the employee-owned business APLNow LLC, which adopted the name APL2000.
APL2000, and later APLNow, held the APL2000 user conferences from 1996 to 2014.
APL Developer Network (APLDN)
The APL Developer Network (APLDN) is an online community organized by the company for the exchange of ideas, programming tips and discussion of product issues among the customers and staff of APL2000. Their online forum is well-organized and, although directed to APL2000 users, it has topics of general interest for APL users. The APLDN Archive is an older static version of the forum that is worth poking around in for historical nuggets.
