Data Crow 4.1 has been released

That took a while, right? Finally the web server has been released! The server edition now has the capability to host both web and full Data Crow clients at the same time.
This version contains the new web server as part of the existing server architecture. This replaces the old web module as was delivered with version 3 but never made it into version 4. The web server delivers the following functionality:
Searching for items (Search..), Creating new item (File > Create New), Edit item (Right-Click > Edit), Navigation between items (for example, open a software title, then click on it's category, then see which other items have been assigned to this category, etc.), Picking fields for the overview and the item form (web). (Settings > ..) and the full security model has been implemented. This web server delivers the same basic functionality (with a tad more style) as the old web module and will be expanded upon with each and every normal (4.x) delivery (see the roadmap section).
The web server is a module of the existing (since 4.0) server edition. The web server uses an embedded version of Tomcat, version 8.0.23.... read more
