Fire: Listmessenger Pro 2.2.0 Release Candidate Available

Written by RSS Poster ListMessenger News and Updates
KINGSTON, On., Sunday, July 13th, 2008 - I am pleased to announce the availability of the first and only public release candidate of ListMessenger Pro 2.2.0, which is now available for download to users who have previously purchased a licence of ListMessenger Pro. You can download ListMessenger Pro 2.2.0 RC1 by logging into the ListMessenger Members Area, and clicking the "My Downloads" link on the right.

It should be noted that this is a release candidate, meaning that I do not consider it stable for production environments just yet, although your help with testing it is greatly appreciated.

I am happy to remind you that all upgrades for ListMessenger Pro are free.

ListMessenger 2.2 introduces several new features, and enhances overall long term stability by preparing for the future of PHP (PHP6) and continuing to support legacy PHP (PHP4).

The key highlights for ListMessenger 2.2 include:
  • New Rich Text Editor
    We have had long standing issues with various rich text editors through ListMessenger's history,...

Fire: Listmessenger Development Update

Written by RSS Poster ListMessenger News and Updates
KINGSTON, On., Wednesday, April 23rd, 2008 - I have had some questions relating to ListMessenger development and the next release, so I thought I should write an announcement outlining the current development status.

Generally speaking I aim to put out 1 or 2 releases per year; however, it has been nearly 13 months since the 2.1 release. Just to be clear, ListMessenger is still being developed and activity has been slow but steady. This past year has been great, we have thousands of new users and have received a lot of fantastic constructive criticism that helps drive new development and has helped make ListMessenger what it is today.

There are actually two versions of ListMessenger currently in development:

ListMessenger 2.2
This release will be out shortly and consists of many updates, bug fixes, and some new and enhanced features such as:
  • New default rich text editor (TinyMCE 3.0.5 with MCImageManager plugin).
  • New ability to search for data in your custom fields.
  • New advanced SMTP connections (including SSL connection and...

Fire: Listmessenger Pro 2.0 Hits The Streets, Tuesday!

Written by RSS Poster ListMessenger News and Updates
KINGSTON, On., Sunday, May 15th, 2005 - ListMessenger Pro 2.0 hits the streets on Tuesday, May 17th, 2005. Yes, I said ListMessenger Pro 2.0 and yes, I said Tuesday, May 17th, 2005 and I delighted to be making this announcement.

After over a year an a half in development and a full version number increase I am pleased to announce ListMessenger Pro 2.0 which will be available on Tuesday, May 17th, 2005. ListMessenger 1.1 never did do this release justice and I've known that for months now, but wanted to make it a surprise for all ListMessenger users.

I realize that I have said this release will be released in the past; however, I can assure you that you will have it this Tuesday. The reason being... that it's already done. Yes, I have the distribution file on my desktop now and it's just about ready to go. We have some small house cleaning to take care of before we can release it which is why it won't be available until Tuesday.

Here are a few of the many new major features:
