We will announce it here as soon as it is ready, but for those who want to follow the progress, please read the daily annnouncements on the canadian pharmacy generic viagra online.

Minor Delay for the SIMPOL 1.8 Release http://www.simpol.com/blog/2014/02/28/minor-delay-simpol-1-8-release/ http://www.simpol.com/blog/2014/02/28/minor-delay-simpol-1-8-release/#comments Fri, 28 Feb 2014 14:48:22 +0000 http://www.simpol.com/?p=428 We know that many of you have been anxiously awaiting the SIMPOL Professional 1.8 release. We are working tirelessly to get it to you, but unfortunately there is a lot more to finish than we allowed for. We estimate it will take until the 7th of March before everything has been completed.

This time around we had not only to pick up and complete the work that was begun last September, we also had to go through and make copyright changes throughout the source code, we added numerous features that were requested, have been testing and either documenting or repairing, depending on time, various issues raised by our customers, and still are adding more examples and documentation to make this release easier than ever to use.

We will keep you posted on our progess, but rest assured, there is nothing on our current work schedule aside from delivering this release, and as soon as we can manage it, it will come out. On a separate note, we are also preparing the web shop to resume commerce, but until we have the new company in place that will manage the affairs of both SIMPOL and Superbase, we cannot set up bank accounts to handle sales. We have begun this proccess, but it may take a week or so before we are where we need to be.

Watch the canadian pharmacy viagra generic for updates.

Please be patient with us :).

SIMPOL Professional 1.8 by February 28th, 2014 http://www.simpol.com/blog/2014/02/19/simpol-professional-1-8-february-28th-2014/ http://www.simpol.com/blog/2014/02/19/simpol-professional-1-8-february-28th-2014/#comments Wed, 19 Feb 2014 18:18:31 +0000 http://www.simpol.com/?p=426 We know many of you have been waiting patiently for the SIMPOL Professional 1.8 update. The planned release of the product back in October was unable to go ahead because of the pending liquidation of Simpol Limited and insufficient time to complete the release.

Now that the product is once again being developed, we are working to get a 1.8 release out as soon as possible. A number of enhancements are going into this release that would otherwise have waited for the next. Still, we have cut short some of what was planned and will release it with the current set of enhancements by the end of February, 2014. We are still polishing a few things, and have some more documentation to write, but that should not prevent a release for our target date.

Watch this space for further updates.

SIMPOL Professional 1.8 Coming in October 2013 http://www.simpol.com/blog/2013/08/08/simpol-professional-1-8-coming-september-2013/ http://www.simpol.com/blog/2013/08/08/simpol-professional-1-8-coming-september-2013/#comments Thu, 08 Aug 2013 18:15:11 +0000 http://www.simpol.com/?p=408 We originally intended this release for September 2013, but we had several difficult bugs reported that put us back a couple of weeks. In addition, we chose to add a Labels Designer mode to the Form Designer, so we will release not only the labels engine, but also a Labels Designer as part of this release. in addition, we still need to document the updated enhancements, and update the installers accordingly.

We apologize sincerely for the delay, but the only other option would have been to drop the release of the labels engine and deisgner for this release, and we are too close to completion to want to do that. The original announcement follows:

We have been working on various things for the coming release. Much of it is polishing what is already there. Naturally we also have some new things that will be coming as well. Some specific highlights include:

  • Labels engine
  • Program to pack SIMPOL programs into an EXE
  • New version of GUISimpolServer that runs the PPCS server as a service and provides a GUI to control it.
  • Improvements to the Linux support

We will explain in more detail when the release is ready.
