Agent 2.0 Progress Report
We've done a lot of work towards Agent 2.0 in the past year. It's time that we gave you a progress report.
At the beginning of this year, we made the decision to port Agent 2.0 to wxWidgets -- a mature, open-source, cross-platform user interface toolkit:
Porting to wxWidgets is a major investment in Agent's future. It gives us all a state-of-the-art foundation on which to extend Agent's feature set over the next 10 years. Fortunately, the port is almost complete!
A key benefit of the wxWidgets port is that we've added many new features to Agent as a direct result of the port:
We are not quite ready to publish Agent 2.0's exact release schedule, but we are very confident that Agent 2.0 will be available for purchase and upgrade later this year. See Agent's Product Road Map for a complete list of Agent 2.0's features.
Agent Design Board
Forté is proud to announce the formation of the Agent Design Board. We've engaged a select group of Agent users who have decades of Usenet and Internet experience. Their charter is to influence the direction of Agent's Product Road Map in accordance with the current needs of Agent Community. We are already feeling the impact of the Design Board. As a direct result of their input, Agent's 2.0 Road Map has been updated to include:
As always, we thank you for your patience and continued support. As our plans continue to fall into place, we will keep you updated on a more regular basis.
