Avanti version 0.4 pre-release 1 is complete and is available at the
Avanti website: http://www.nslsilus.org/~schlumpf/avanti . Included in
this release is the first GUI search client (finally!). A running demo of
this client is available at the web site. try it out! A more in depth
explanation of the interface design is available at
Version 0.4 represents a major step forward for Avanti. This version
defines all the fundamental components of the system from back-end DBMS to
GUI client. 0.4 also defines the overall client-server architecture of
Avanti and the communications protocol used between client and server.
The next release will be 0.4 proper, a much cleaner and better
documented rendition of what is in this pre-release.
I am open to any and all feedback. Feel free to drop me an e-mail.
