We are proud to announce general availability of Convertigo 6.1 code named “Nitrogen”. Starting from version 6.0, when Convertigo introduced the first Open Source Enterprise class Mashup platform, all releases of Convertigo are now code named using gas molecules, symbolizing lightness, cloud and agility.
Having collected lots of feedback from our developer community, we decided to enhance the products on two major axis:
- As mobility is now the most active field where Convertigo is used, thanks to its unique capabilities of exposing existing business applications on mobiles devices such as tablets and smartphones, we decided to add a strong support for JQuery Mobile user interfaces. Convertigo 6.0 already was supporting the Sencha Touch mobile framework, but now the mobile developer has even more choices. He will be able to choose one for our Mobile templates and to build the Mobile UI using Sencha Touch or JQuery mobile as he wishes, giving him a stronger flexibility.
- We also noticed that Convertigo projects where now developed not by only one person but by complete teams! Thanks to the Eclipse environment on which Convertigo Studio is built, we were already supporting team features such as SVN or CVS integration, but this support wasn’t complete. One of the major enhancements we made in “Nitrogen” is to give developers the ability to use version control systems such as SVN on CVS even for core Convertigo objects. This helps teams to share, compare, merge and version control all their projects, resulting in building better and more efficient Mobile and Mashup applications.
We sincerely hope that Convertigo 6.1 will help you even better to built the best enterprise mobile applications and mashups.
