Medi 0.2.2 released with an installer!

The new version of Medi, 0.2.2, is online with an installer. Now you can install the program with a nice GUI, thanks to VAInstall (http://vainstall.sourceforge.net). Installation with Firebird is easier: now you don't have to create the user or the database file (Linux and Windows 9x, other Windows systems are untested).

Medi has a faster GUI

The new version 0.1.90 of Medi is online.
It has got a new faster (parallel) GUI, now you can browse trees while requesting a details page.
It is a pre-release to 0.2.0 version, in which the GUI will be completely multi-threading. Anyway 0.1.90 is better than 0.1.3!

New version 0.1.3a released. It is the new internationalized version of Medi, supporting English and Italian. Support for other languages will be added in future.
Download this version, DON'T DOWNLOAD version 0.1.3, because it is buggy.
