My3SP 0.1.3 released

My3SP is a thin-client application designed to interoperate with our secure Open3SP framework server. As of release 0.1.3, My3SP is now integrated with Open3SP and may provide access to services published by the server. Currently available services include a VPN client and a corporate instant messaging client. Client settings can also be backed up to the server to allow configuration settings to be replicated across several different machines. The instant messaging module is fully-featured, providing a range of features such as smiley support, colored text, away statuses and the ability to save (and load) conversations.

Once installed and in accordance with role policy, these modules dynamically provide additional tabs to users logging in via our My3SP client application.
