Nimi Places 20120421 released

After almost 2 years since project start, three months since last version, we are proud to release lat­est Nimi Places. Codenamed "Elision" its milestone release before next genera­tion — Nimi Places 2g.

Most notic­able ​in new version is removal of two con­tainer types (patchwork & paths con­tainer) leaving only place type con­tainer avail­able. Second most notic­able changes are removal of server ​and widgets functiona­lity. However, creat­ed gap was filled with new components ​and update of existing.

While places con­tainer use itself was improv­ed with such addi­tions like scrollbar ​or changes ​in rendering, addi­tions like PDF thumbnails ​or better sorting boost producti­vity tremendously.

As we und­erstand that not every user might be pleased with removal of some featur­es — we highly encourage Those to con­tact us.
