Dear Clients, Partners & Friends,

2015 is almost coming to a close. We hope that it has been a successful and prosperous year, professionally as well as personally.

During the year we released Alpha version 3 of Panther Enterprise Gateway for Windows allowing developers to expose Panther functionality to mobile devices and web browsers.

We have also been working on our Panther Web Services product which is scheduled to be released along with Panther 5.5 in March of 2016.

We’d like to take this opportunity to thank you for your business and support. Wishing you a season of joy and looking forward to continued success in 2016.

~ Prolifics Product & Support Team
