Cleveland, Ohio, 10/31/2013 --

Genii Software is pleased to announce the immediate availability of Midas LSX 5.00, a major new release of the widely acclaimed product extension for IBM Notes/Domino. After sixteen years of ongoing success as the Midas Rich Text LSX, the name has been changed to reflect the growing capabilities of the Midas LSX.

Midas LSX 5.00 is available now for all 32-bit and 64-bit Windows platforms running IBM Notes/IBM Domino 9.x Social Edition and IBM Lotus Notes/IBM Lotus Domino 6.5x/7.x/8.x/8.5.x.

Midas LSX 5: Along with enhancements to our widely recognized HTML generation engine and modifications to support IBM Notes/Donmino 9 Social Edition, Midas LSX 5 offers a new set of abilities to support the fast-changing mobile development market as well as the need for better ways to use company's valuable Notes/Domino data stores outside of the classic Notes environment.

ePublishing: Long gone are the days when every customer could be expected to read data on a large screen. With the explosion of mobile devices of various sizes from tablets to phones, along with the standard corporate desktops and laptops, there is a need to present data in fluid, reflowable formats that adjust properly to the device being used. The global standard for this content is the EPUB format. Midas LSX 5 offers the ability to create EPUB representations of collections of documents with extensive control over the content, presentation and navigation inside thse "instant eBooks". All current iPhones and iPads will read EPUB files directly, and there are readily available free apps for reading EPUB files on all Android devices. Firefox, Chrome and other browsers offer free plugins to allow direct reading of EPUB files as well.

JSON generation: To support programmatic access to IBM Notes/Domino data from XPages, mobile devices and external software packages, the Midas LSX enables generation of JSON for both rich text and other data in single documents or collections of documents. Developers can depend on Midas to be fast, accurate and secure.

CSV exports: When the need arises to move a large quantity of data out of Notes to go to SharePoint or Google Apps without loss of fidelity, the Midas LSX 5 offers the best way to take all the content out including rich text fields, images and attachments. Using a CSV format, this data can be read directly into a SharePoint data store, or into most SQL databases that support the CSV format for input.

Mail Archive exports: Both collections of documents and individual documents can be exported to Mail Archive format (.eml) for input to other mail systems including Microsoft Exchange. High fidelity rendering provides a safe and secure way to migrate data from IBM Domino to another email system when the need arises.

Web Archive exports: Both collections of documents and individual documents can be exported to Web Archive format (.mht), either as linked documents of in a single document "capsule view". The web archive format can be read natively in Internet Explorer, but is also supported easily in most other browsers via plugin. Companies can use these snapshots of data to produce mini-catalogs completely customized to a an individual's needs (e.g., real estate listings in a specific price range with specific constraints, or a product catalog based on a customer's prior purchases).

Web to Notes imports: High quality data imports allow you to turn a collection of HTML files into separate Notes documents quickly and cleanly. Midas LSX 5 will even read HTML files from inside a zipped collection to allow import of various packaged collections such as EPUB.

Midas LSX 5 continues to stand alone as the preeminent extensions allowing data movement into and out of IBM Notes/Domino, and manipulation and control of rich content inside IBM Notes/Domino. Over 50% of the largest companies worldwide have used the Midas Rich Text LSX since it was introduced in 1997, and with its expansion as the Midas LSX today, we anticipate an even wider reach.
