IOF Release 7D Early Test Program
The first beta test versions of IOF 7D were shipped to customers on June 18, 1997. Each beta site was chosen because of its interest in one or more of the new features of 7D as described in the July 1997 newsletter. Features generating the highest interest are:
DocumentationChanges to the Install Guide are almost complete. Additions and changes to the User Guide are being made, but several weeks of additional work will be required to finish this project. Panel formats in both the User Guide and in Online Help still need to be updated.
Availability of 7DBeta testing of 7D has been slowed somewhat by the summer vacation season. There is no specific general availability date. 7D will be released as soon as we are satisified that it performs properly and will not cause a maintenance problem for customers. It is safe to say that 7D will not be released officially before the end of September 1997.
Additional Beta Test SitesAdditional beta test sites are needed. If you are interested in one or more of the 7D functions, we encourage you to consider becoming a test site. 7D runs in parallel with your existing 7C version of IOF and requires minimal effort to install.
