  • Interchange 4.9.4 released

    Posted on 02-Dec-2002 by Mike Heins

    ICDEVGROUP is happy to announce the release of Interchange 4.9.4. It is the best Interchange available today.

    All people using the 4.9.3 nightly builds as a basis for their development should standardize on this version and not update routinely from the nightly_build tree. The next round of nightly builds and CVS checkouts will start to be unstable in the UI area, as a major update to page logic and page look-and-feel is in progress.

    • New survey and mailforms generator allows you to point and click your way to a poll, survey, or feedback form including an optional "wizard" look and feel.
    • Payment settlement functions for post-auth and void are now supported in the UI, and the order status update functions are easier and more visually pleasing.
    • Forum feature allows commments and reviews by users.
    • Tabbed-display tag allows easy creation of tabbed entries on a page — portable for Mozilla, MSIE 5.5+, and Opera 7.
    • New UI look and feel. This is a taste of what is to come; some very professional HTML design is still ongoing, and Interchange is not done yet in that regard.

    The WHATSNEW document has a large list of changes:

    While officially it is still in alpha release, the code is quite stable and the various nightly builds of 4.9.3 are in wide use in production. THe alpha status is because the UI interface is changing so rapidly. The customer-facing code is very stable and in most ways is better than the stable 4.8.6 branch.

    The code is available at the ICDEVGROUP site:
