Visual WebGUI Poised to Create a New Standard in Cloud Computing

Announces release of Visual WebGui 6.2

Gizmox - the Company that released Visual WebGui to the public in early 2008 - is poised to create a new standard in cloud computing. Visual WebGui (VWG) is a new 'Web like Desktop' platform that offers an open source rapid application development (RAD) framework for line-of-business AJAX & Silverlight applications atop the platform. "This new version of Visual WebGui addresses many of the issues raised by the development community about our previous releases," said Navot Peled, CEO of Gizmox.

"This edition enables a more efficient usage and configuration of Visual WebGui and the installer includes all of Visual WebGui SDK's .NET versions as well as all of the commercial extensions," Pelot added. "We look forward to hearing from our community of developers, who can evaluate the entire solution suite free of charge."

VWG, he explained, cuts down development time (Peled - "proven up to 90%") without compromising on extensibility, scalability, performance, security or complexity.

The Visual WebGui 6.2 upgrade will introduce a complete integration into the Visual Studio designer, allowing Visual WebGui Projects to be configured without any need for manual configuration.

"The Silverlight Package has also been upgraded to include the Silverlight Packager into the Visual Studio Project Property Pages," said Pelot. He added:

"In addition, the new version can also be installed without Visual Studio and allows developing web from almost any machine with either the free Visual Studio Express edition, the open source SharpDevelop, or even Notepad."

The upgraded version allows Visual WebGui to expose the entire set of desktop development tools exactly as in WinForms, a level that was unreachable in previous versions, Pled noted.

The new version also contains an upgraded installation protocol which consolidates all Visual WebGui's Products, Open source Installation, Documentation and Samples into a single step-by-step process.

Additional features available in the upgrade include:

  • Full Compatibility with Windows Vista
  • Customizable Drag and Drop Animation in Run Time
  • DHTML Rendering Enhancements providing faster rendering and enabling multi-tab browsing in Internet Explorer 7
  • VeriSign Certification Signatures for the entire installation process for higher security
