We are proud to announce that Girder 5 is in heavy development and nearing it's first public beta. Some of the new features that Girder 5 will offer are:
- Vista Compatibility for all versions
We are testing and modifying Girder 5 to work smoothly work with Windows Vista.
- Watchdog (Enterprise)
The Watchdog will keep en eye on Girder and it's plugins. If something goes wrong and Girder can no longer run, the watchdog will step up and restart Girder.
- Device Manager (Pro)
This fabulous new feature will save you countless hours setting up your house controls. You configure what devices you have in your house once inside Girder and from there on every Promixis Automation Product! With Girder's integrated web server, the Device Manager automatically builds web pages of all your devices so you can control them from anywhere. Combined with NetRemote 2.0, the new Device Manager will automatically generate interfaces to control your devices.
- Component Manager (All)
A centralized system for add and managing extensions to Girder 5. Makes adding extensisons to Girder easy. Components can be writting in Lua or any language that compiles into a DLL that Girder can load. Works with existing plugins as well, replacing the previous plugin manager
- Overhauled UI (All)
For Girder 5 we are reworking some of the ways in which Girder's UI works. We've taken your input and are making Girder 5 even more user friendly.
- Upgrade policy
You receive 50% of your Girder 3 or 4 purchase as a discount. Example: You bought Girder 4 Pro ($99.99) and would like to upgrade to Girder 5 WHP ($149.99). %50 of $99.99 = $50.00. So you pay $149.99 - $50.00 = $99.99.
The beta will be available soon to the general public, keep your eyes on our forums!
