Development of DeedMapper 4.0 has begun!
Our plan calls for two stages of development.
1. The first stage is now done, a complete re-write of 3.0 using the latest
Microsoft tools. We call it version 3.5. It's version 3.0 on the outside
but with a totally new interior. It is not intended to be an actual
released product, just a waypoint on the road to 4.0.
2. The second stage is the addition of new features and capabilities to make
version 4.0. No date has been set for version 4.0 but it will certainly
not be in 2005.
While we've done a good amount of internal testing, version 3.5 would
benefit from end user testing, assuring a solid base for 4.0 development.
We're wondering if anyone on the list would like to participate. Ideal
candidates will have the following characteristics:
. they're regular users of DeedMapper (so we get frequent feedback)
. they're running Windows XP (Home or Professional)
. they're knowledgable about using their computer
. they can tolerate unexpected behavior from the program and are curious
. they're not bashful about communicating any issues they find
Testing will not require the removal of DM3 from your system. The new
version runs independently.
