DeepaMehta 4.0.12 released

This release is all about publishing and collaboration. For the first time there are Access Control and Security features in DeepaMehta. This enables a whole range of new use cases. Topicmap Publishing: everybody can access published topicmaps in a read-only fashion while the topicmaps are still fully interactive. Team Collaboration: per-object Access Control Lists (ACL) and 5 differentiated user roles allow fine-grained control about who has access to what (not yet configurable via GUI). File Sharing: authorized users can upload files to a structured repository and enable common access.

For plugin developers there are fundamental improvements as well. More Convention Over Configuration simplifies plugin development significantly and provides a much more dynamic feeling. As another highlight, Hot Deployment finally works as expected and makes the edit-compile-run cycle a true breeze.

For details see the Release Notes.

DeepaMehta 4.0.11 released

This release provides substantial improvements for users and a serious bunch of under-the-hood improvements for developers. For regular users the highlight feature is Implicit Saving: the user must no longer care about saving; DM automatically ensures nothing is lost. The highlight feature for power users who create custom data models is the Type Editor with support for Cardinality "Many" at last. Last but not least 3 external plugins have been updated in order to be compatible with this release.

For details see the release notes.
