Aproove V2.2 is now released

Release of Aproove V2.2

Dear Partners and Friends,

We are proud to announce the official release of Aproove V.2.2 - This introduction was expected from a lot of our customers waiting for it. Aproove V2.2 is introducing a lot of optimization on existing 2.1 servers by supporting extended load with same servers. This will be the last V2 release as we'll release Aproove V3 beta at the end of September.

We mainly introduced many improvements on existing features in this new release giving you more stability and productivity from your Aproove server or Aproove service. We reached above 60.000+ connected user per month in early September that confirmed the growing interest in Aproove.

Please see release notes on License portal for detailed feature list.

The Drupa Exhibition has shown a massive interest in the workflow capabilities in Aproove. Invitation Flow (the Aproove collaboration workflow) has been shown at Drupa and will be part of Aproove V3, the next release. This will introduce a new era in the collaboration workflow design as you will simply draw your workflow in a friendly editor and follow it graphically in both the flat plan display with color codes and a new graphical display mode dedicated for tracking workflow progress in realtime. This will give you a new control on the automation of the common collaboration task, sequences and automated decisions.

Last year, we introduced a new product called Aproove Express, an instant online proofing service for Enfocus Switch - See www.aproove-express.com for more informations. This service is heavily used now and run smooth in production by printers from all over the place. This is probably the smoothest Aproove version ever made... Very robust, plug and forget service!

For existing customers running on premise installations of Aproove, a plugin to connect your local Switch server with your local Aproove server is available. Contact Serge LO GRASSO about this new opportunity.

The launch of Aproove ONE has been a great success in Europe, Japan and US. A new release of the Aproove One portal is planned for end of September introducing the Aproove One Premium (introduced at Drupa in preview). Aproove one is the "plug and play" version of Aproove with all the power and specifically designed feature to fit the most demanding online proofing needs. This introduce the preview of what Aproove Executive will be by next year asAproove ONE is fully developed in HTML5... Stay tuned and visit aproove.com for more information.
