Mach-II 1.8 Release Candidate Available

Team Mach-II (which is now six people strong!) is pleased to announce the immediate availability of Mach-II 1.8 RC1. Download Mach-II 1.8 RC1 now.

Mach-II 1.8 introduces numerous new features and also sets the stage for us to move forward to 1.9 code named "Integrity" and the big 2.0 release code named "Velocity".

New features and enhancements include:

In addition to these "marquee" features, Mach-II 1.8 includes a ton of smaller improvements that will make building Mach-II applications even faster and easier than before, so make sure and check out the "What's New in Mach-II 1.8" page on the wiki for all the details.

And there's the usual round of bug fixes and performance improvements of course. You can see the details in the CHANGELOG, but we do want to point out some highlights:

We can't thank our community enough for all the fantastic feedback and assistance they offer on the development of Mach-II. From questions on aspects of the framework that aren't as clear as they should be, to bug reports, to feature requests, to testing on real-world Mach-II applications, this is all vital to the continued progress and success of Mach-II. We couldn't do what we do without the active participation of our vibrant, smart community.

I'm so excited because we're starting a whole new development cycle for Mach-II. Mach-II Simplicity (1.8) has been development for an entire year now and having a new features is going to be a lot of fun. We're moving to a milestone type releases so look for new features soon in Mach-II 1.9 code named "Integrity".
