Today is a real milestone day for Mike, Carl and everyone at Revelation Software who have been involved with the OpenInsight 10 release.
Over the last few weeks, many of you have been asking me how the project has been progressing and when you will see the final release. Well today that day has arrived with Revelation Software releasing the final shipping version of OpenInsight 10 to WORKS subscriber overnight.
The new version is a world away from what we had before. The interface for the desktop development suite is so much nicer to work in, it is more intuitive, you can work on multiple things at once and you’ll be building interfaces with far less code than before. Revelation really have taken a lot of the hard work away by exposing and including a whole host of new properties. O4W has not been forgotten either, and Bryan has introduced a whole new layer of design control, but I’m yet to get into O4W 10 for the moment, so more on this later.
In addition, OpenInsight now includes support for some cloud based databases, glyph buttons, the toolset is more DPI aware with the option for you to use numerous sizes of images for better representation within your applications, a powerful new OIConsole Manager, performance enhancements and much, much more.
I hope to run a small video of the new release later today (time permitting). In the meantime, if you are an OpenInsight WORKS subscriber, you can get the full release from the WORKS area in the normal place. If you are not a WORKS subscriber, please contact your local Revelation Software office to find out more about how OpenInsight can help you to build better applications.
