Beta 1.1.000 in prod

18. January 2007 Ajax Interface, News, Uncategorized 2 Comments

We are pleased to announce a first beta release of the new GUI of the ContactOffice Virtual Office. This beta is based on GWT (Google Web Toolkit). It presently only contains the documents ans bookmarks tools and might contain bugs. There is currently no support for Safari, but this will be added soon (Apple users could in the meantime use FireFox).

Do not hesitate to submit bugs or wishes at any time to gwt-beta@contactoffice.com or post to this blog. We are mostly interested at this time in your feedback on our general approach. In particular we’d like to know if there are any fundamental design/interface choices we have made that will ultimately prevent us from achieving a correct application.

The release is offered ‘as is’ and beta tester accounts might be deleted without prior notice. So, please do not store any important information. Beta tester accounts might be subject to deletion if not used after 30 consecutive days. Beta tester accounts are also valid on ContactOffice

  2. The problem you might face when going this direction is that users will start using your application as a real desktop application. You’ll then need to perfectly mimic what users get used to use (ex : move a doc from the desktop to the document folders). There should be a distinctive sign reminding that this is not a desktop application (i.e some limitations apply).
