It includes a photo album, blog, forum, RSS feeds and a SOAP frontend. For more information, it is useful to description of the program, or take a look at the website from WOSA. The developers of Plain Black have released a new beta version with 7.2.0 as the version number. The list of adjustments looks like this:

We are happy to announce the release of WebGUI 7.2.0 beta. This release includes several new features including sales tax support in the commerce system as well as a spell checker for the Rich Text Editor. This release also includes more than 30 bug fixes.

Note: This is considered a beta release due to the new features added and is not recommended for production use at this time.

  • Added server side spell checker (Martin Kamerbeek / Procolix)
