Version 3.4 Available Now!

Version 3.4 is a major update to the software. The focuses of this update are to

  2. improve the Server Performance by changing certain caching algorithm to reduce the memory footprint of the application by as much as 1/3, and
  3. improve Client Browser Compatibility by updating some HTML in the code and finally bringing full IE 8 compatibility to the software. jQuery is now incorporated into the software, and performs certain essential functions like UI animation and certain Ajax requests.
