Happy Holidays from our Product and Support Teams

To Our Valued Panther/JAM Customers,

Another year has almost come to an end. We hope that it has been a successful one, both personally and professionally. Here at Prolifics, we have had a busy and fulfilling year of helping our customers with upgrades and migrations in JAM, Panther, XMLink, and XUG.

We are excited to announce the release of the pre-alpha version of Panther Enterprise Gateway (PEG)! See the article below for more information on PEG.

Panther 5.40 for the Windows and Red Hat platforms will also be released at the end of Q1. Some highlights in Panther 5.40 include support for Oracle 12c, Microsoft Visual Studio 2012 and 2013 support, the ability to set color to fields in Panther Reports, sending email using CDO, HTML5 Compliant generation and much more. A complete list of new features and bug fixes will be made available in our newsletter next year.

Thank you for your business this year. It has been a pleasure helping you reach your goals, and we look forward to contributing to your success in 2014. We wish you a prosperous and happy New Year.
