Cleveland, Ohio, 02/05/2008 -- Genii Software announced today the immediate availability of Version 4.00 of the Midas Rich Text LSX and Midas Rich Text C++. This major feature release offers both substantial feature enghacements and support for Notes/Domino 8.x. Some of the key enhancements:

Enhanced file attachment handling

Functionality has been added to allow extensive flexibility in adding and managing file attachments, especially with regards to attachment icons. Icons can now be created with both custom and standard images as well as additional text tags, allowing personalization or corporate branding of attachment icons.

Automated Wiki link processing
Support has been added for Wiki links in rich text, allowing fast and easy authoring assistance inside the IBM Lotus Notes client as well as on the web. In addition, Wiki links can be used to rapidly create link hotspots without coding or manual steps, using an easy to learn syntax.

Regular expression support added for a variety of functions
Support has been added for regular expression matching with a number of methods, enabling intelligent search and replace, data mining with regular expression keywords, highlighting and more. The additional power of the regular expression engine will empower a great many new potential applications.

Enhanced HTML generation and HTML import
Extensive improvements have been made in the HTML generation engine and the separate HTML import engine, primarily focused on performance and scalability, but also incorporating bug fixes and reliability enhancements, and improvement in CSS handling. Particular focus has been on use through the Midas C++ API to allow third parties to incorporate HTML coexistence as part of their offerings, but the improvements apply to all three Midas Rich Text products.

Enhanced Image handling
Additional properties have been added to allow switching between stored images and native images. Stored images are held in CD Storage attachments and are used for delayed display of images on demand.

Full support for internal ND 7 and ND8 constructs
While Notes/Domino 7.x has been supported since Version 3.61, additional support for new rich text structures and options have been added to the rich text editing engine, and Version 4.00 is the first version to fully support Notes/Domino 8 for both Midas products.

Version 4.00 has been released for the Windows 95/98/NT/2000/XP client and the Windows NT/2000/2003 server, as well as for AIX 4.3.3 and above. More details on features, as well as enhanced samples and demos on our website, will be available on the Genii Software website.
