Aware IM 8.1 is now available with many new features
Version 8.1 introduces a number of new features and improvements that our customers have been waiting for.
Already incredibly fast, the development process in Aware IM is even faster now! Read what version 8.1 has to offer below.
1. Consume REST-ful API Out-of-the-box
You no longer need a Java plugin to consume REST-ful services exposed by other applications (Google, Facebook, Yahoo and others). With version 8.1 you can call their API by defining REST-ful services directly in the Configuration Studio.
2. Tighter Integration with Excel
Use your existing Excel spreasheets to perform complex calculations that read data from Aware IM database and write the result of the calculations back into the database.
3. Dynamically Calculated Columns in Grids
If a calculation is only used in a query (displayed as a grid) you can define this calculation directly in the query for better performance.
4. Improved Report Designer
Many new features have been added to the Aware IM Report Designer – support for table elements, page break anywhere in the report, support for borders for text and images, support for text rotation and many others.
