This re-write of the software using recent Microsoft .net technology allows us to significantly improve the look and feel of the software, as well as incorporating a couple of new features, like graphs. It's also allowed us to prepare for a couple more enhancements over the coming months. We've also launched our blog which will explain different facets of Progress 8 and Calcul:8.
