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.
