R-Comp rolls out product upgradesPublished: 22nd Feb 2008, 21:20:52 | Permalink | Printable
NetFetch, Messenger Pro and DataPower updates releasedRISC OS software publishing house R-Comp have managed to squeeze out updates to three of their products in time for tomorrow's South West 2008 show. NetFetch 3, Messenger Pro 5 and DataPower 3 have been improved and registered users are set to receive the latest versions for free in an email soon. Everyone else can pick up the latest copies at the show.
In an announcement, R-Comp staff said: "We are pleased to announce that new versions of three popular R-Comp products will be debuting at the South West show this weekend. And, what's more, they will all be free - well, to appropriate existing users, anyway."
In brief: according to R-Comp, NetFetch 3.15 includes a new version of Hermes with improvements to the anti-spam filtering and whitelist handling, the ability to view mail on a server and other features and bug fixes.
Messenger Pro 5.12 includes "major improvements" for users of MPro Server edition, which is said to have been "completely updated to improve both speed and compatibility" to work faster and be more compatible with other computer platforms. The non-server-edition version has a number of changes to the way email addresses and names are shown in line with user feedback, better handling of the foreign-characters in spam messages and other bug fixes.
Finally, DataPower 3.05 is said to be more compatible with databases created with older versions of the software, and provides an improved user interface for controlling some of the new features, such as the spell checker.
