The beta version is an almost finalized version of version 7.0 which will be released in the fall of 2020. It allows users to take advantage of the new features, but may still contain some minor bugs that we will correct as soon as we know them.
The result of almost two years of work, this version brings the following new features :
64-bit execution and Catalina macOS compatibility (macOS Mojave min.) and Windows 10 (Windows 7 and 8 not supported any more).
Smoother user interface and faster performance.
Enhanced encryption of data passing through the network (multi-user and Cloud versions).
Modern multi-windows on Windows (disappearance of the grey background window), which also allows two computer screens to be operated simultaneously, as was already the case for the macOS version.
New integrated word processor, much richer in possibilities and allowing the export of MS Word documents.
Redesign of the e-mail sending functions.
Other new features will be added between now and the final version 7.
The interface and ergonomics of the software, however, remain the same. So current users don't need to change their work habits.
If you are such a user and you wish to use the beta version, please contact us. We will plan its installation together.
We would like to thank in advance all the volunteer libraries allowing us to propose this fall a finalized version 7.
