Well, we are nearly there with Superbase NG 2.0

It has been a very long road. We have made a huge number of changes to the product, including its name, and added some very useful and important new features, including our Graphic Report Designer. The install system was completely rewritten using a modern install package, which in itself turned out to be quite a challenge, and we addressed various issues that had been plaguing the product, some since Windows 7, some only with the release of Windows 10. We will release a final release candidate ...

SIMPOL 1.8 Release Update 25 Mar 2014

We were hoping that today would be the day for the release, but packing the installer and finalizing the release notes and items in the overview of the Quick Start Guide simply took up a lot of time.

Tomorrow will be a big day :). Sleep well.

On Tuesday we will pack up the items into the installer ...
