Fire: New Listmessenger Website Launched

Written by RSS Poster ListMessenger News and Updates
Kingston, ON., Sunday, March 27th, 2011 - March has been a busy month for us! First we release the long awaited ListMessenger Pro 2.2.1 version, now we release a completely revamped shiny new website. Nice. Oh but there is still more to come. We will be releasing ListMessenger Light 2.2.1 later this week, and coming soon are some major updates to the way you purchase ListMessenger and manage your ListMessenger Pro licence keys.

I would also like to announce that as of today there are a few new official policies that have come into affect. All policies are now available on the Policies page.

If you have any questions or have any feedback on our new website, please don't hesitate to inquire.

As a final word of mention, I am currently recruiting PHP developers to help me with future releases of ListMessenger Pro, so if you are a talented developer who takes a keen interest in Zend Framework please let me know.

Best Regards,
Matt Simpson

Written by RSS Poster ListMessenger News and Updates
Kingston, ON., Sunday, March 20th, 2011 - I am quite pleased to announce that ListMessenger Light and Pro 2.2.1.0 are now finally available for download. ListMessenger Pro users can download the new release from the "My Downloads" section of the ListMessenger Members Area, and ListMessenger Light users can download the free version from the Downloads section on the new website.

The primary focus of the ListMessenger Pro 2.2.1 release is around stability and bug fixing. We have fixed nearly all known bugs discovered in the software over the past few years, and upgrade all major components and libraries within ListMessenger.

Written by RSS Poster ListMessenger News and Updates
Kingston, ON., Saturday, March 12th, 2011 - After somewhat of an extended development break, I am pleased to announce that ListMessenger 2.2.1 RC1 (Release Candidate 1) is now available for download from the "My Downloads" section of the ListMessenger Members Area.

Please note that this is a pre-release version of ListMessenger, and not the final 2.2.1 release. It is being made available for those folks who are interested in testing out pre-release software.

Fire: New Listmessenger Bug Tracking System Available

Written by RSS Poster ListMessenger News and Updates
KINGSTON, On., Sunday, December 6th, 2009 - We have just integrated a new bug tracking system directly into the ListMessenger forum. We will be using this system to track all confirmed bugs in both ListMessenger Light and Pro, as well as provide solutions to many of these issues in between releases.

The bug tracking system can be accessed by clicking the Bug Tracker link at the top of the forum, then heading into the appropriate project.

We have been using an issue tracker internally for a long time, but this system was never available to the public. We hope that by providing this new method of tracking issues, ListMessenger users will benefit by having quick and easy access to solutions for known issues in the application.


Fire: Listmessenger Forum Upgraded

Written by RSS Poster ListMessenger News and Updates
KINGSTON, On., Saturday, November 28th, 2009 - The ListMessenger support forums have just been upgraded to the latest version of the forum software we use. All of the functionality of the forum appears to be working without a problem; however, the design has definitely changed and we were unable to port our usual forum look and feel to the new version of our forum software.

Over the next short while we will be updating the look and feel of our forums to match the new website we hope to release before the year is out. We fully recognize that the forums currently feel very "stock" right now, but please be patient until we are finished bringing a more "ListMessenger" feel to the forum.

Until then, enjoy the new forum features.


Fire: New Listmessenger Office Manager

Written by RSS Poster ListMessenger News and Updates
KINGSTON, On., Thursday, October 8th, 2009 - I am quite pleased to announce and welcome Karla Simpson to the ListMessenger forums as the new Office Manager and primary point of contact for sales questions and licence key issues.

Karla has been working with me for quite some time in the background responding to purchases, and managing our books, so we both felt she was the ideal person to represent ListMessenger on a larger scale.

Sincerely,
Matt Simpson
