Overnight the OpenInsight 9.3.1 upgrade was posted to the WORKS area for all WORKS members to download. Please contact me if you are not a WORKS member and wish to find out more about this great release.
This latest version includes O4W Mobile Extensions and a brand new data connector for Ladybridge’s OpenQM Multivalue database.
- OpenInsight for Web (O4W v1.3) – This latest version of O4W includes additional integration with the new Banded Report Writer, new support routines for RSS feeds and a brand new ‘ad hoc’ report builder. In addition, the release includes a number of additional mobile enhancements such as a mobile specific menu and report output. Through O4W’s integration with jQuery Mobile (the companion library to O4W’s jQuery), web pages can be created using “finger friendly” user interface elements and design.
- OpenInsight for QM Data Connector (OI4QM) – The OI4QM data connector enables MultiValue application developers to fully utilise the QM database from Ladybridge Systems Limited. Using this dedicated data connector, Windows GUI and Web 2.0 interfaces can be quickly created without any change being required to an existing QM database.
“With this latest release, we’re proving our commitment to our Revelation and MultiValue community”, said Mike Ruane, President/CEO Revelation Software, “They asked us for a connection to QM from Ladybridge, and we listened. Our users also gave us a list of enhancements and suggestions for the Banded Report Writer, and we’ve taken care of them as well.”
Also included in the OI 9.3.1 are a number of patches and enhancements for the Banded Report Writer, Table Builder, and Database manager.
“Mobile computing is an essential requirement for any application development”, said Robert Catalano, Director of Sales, Revelation Software. “We are empowering the MultiValue community with one of the best mobile computing toolkits on the market that is affordable, familiar to MV developers, and connects to their existing database with no change.”
I would like to thank all of the developers involved in this release and also to our army of beta testers who provide their time and invaluable feedback.
