2237 New Build ReleasedOctober 21, 2016
2238 New Build ReleasedFebruary 8, 2017
The new Aware IM Configurator is being totally re-written to encapsulate the Eclipse Framework and will provide a new refreshed look and feel along with a much more efficient paradigm compared to the existing IDE.
In addition to the IDE overhaul, there are a few significant features that will be added to the product.
- “Embedded testing” – you test your version inside the Config Tool using the embedded browser control.
You don’t have to put the version under test every time – just switch to the testing view and it will automatically pick up the changes (unless changes affect the database)
- WISYWIG form editor – the principles are the same as before but you will work using the live form rather than an abstract layout and see the changes immediately
- New Report Designer (or maybe integrated Jasper)
Timimg is not yet clear but early indications are mid 2017.
Note that all of your V7+ apps will work in V8 unaltered.
