Development of Merlinia OutBack 5.4 is now complete. Here's a list of some of the changes since version 5.3.
Request-and-respond facility improvements:
- better display of who are currently considered to be potential responders
- use of "standard locations" to determine which request type (alarm) a user is registered to
- ability to send an SMS to a potential responder when an alarm is activated
A new, and more efficient, Exchange Connector module replaces the previous Calendar Connector. (IBM Domino calendars are no longer supported.)
The OutBack Windows client program can be set up so it automatically installs new versions of itself.
OutBack Server can now be "hosted" on a cloud server, for example a Microsoft Azure virtual machine.
The OutBack for Android app is now available on Google Play.
