Dania Beach, Fla. - September 19, 2005 - OmniPilot Software, Inc., a global provider of integrated management software, today announces the release of Lasso Professional 8.1, as the premier tool for developing, serving and managing data-driven web applications and offers developers a "build once, deploy anywhere" approach.
More than 100 changes and 19 new tags have been added to Lasso 8.1. Key emphasis has been placed on enhancing Lasso's speed and performance in critical areas. Many improvements have been made to Lasso's browser support and handling of a multitude of character sets and encodings. Lasso 8.1 has new features for creating and modifying encrypted PDFs and provides enhanced support for PDF forms.
"This is the last major Lasso update for 2005," said Brett Circe, president of OmniPilot Software. "We tried very hard to incorporate the majority of the feature requests and fixes that our customers have requested since the release of Lasso 8."
The most significant enhancements include:
Lasso Professional Alliance (LPA) member Jim Van Heule, president of Heunox Corporation, has tested the beta program release version of Lasso 8.1 and states, "The testing I have done on the beta program release has shown incredible speed increases. Plus, I have really liked how OmniPilot has been taking the time to not only fix bugs, but to also tweak the overall performance and compatibility of the product. In some tests, I saw a 25x speed increase vs. the current LP8 release. There are also some very nice new features."
This is a FREE update for Lasso customers and LPA members who own any version of Lasso Professional 8. As a special promotion, through the end of September, any previous version of Lasso can be upgraded to Lasso 8.1 for $349. LPA members can upgrade for only $249.
