ImageInvoker v1.0 ready for testers
After months in development hell, I've finally had the time to package up the latest version of ImageInvoker for DS6.9. This is our client-service application which plugs into Deployment Server which enables an "imaging-as-a-service" functionality.
This version is v1.0 (rather than v0.5) as it has finally most of the features I originally wanted,
- Low footprint (both in CPU and disk space) (the install msi is less than 3MB)
- On-the-fly menu provisioning
- Super-fast job scheduling for mass-deployments
- Choice between Hierachical and flat menu systems
- Permissions-based menu provisioning
- Authentication options
There is more I could do; it's still not perfect. But... the workload is mounting so I thought it was time to wrap this up into a Windows installer package for people to test. We've been using this for 3 months here, in pretty much this form (bar a couple of minor improvements). The manual hoofing though that I had to do to get it up and running here though hopefully I've eased with this MSI.
Note that application packaging is not my forte and have guess my way around Wise Package Studio for the most part.... ;-)
If you are interested in trying this release out, just give me a ping and I'll pass it your way. If I get enough testers to ratify it over the next month we could have this published and out on CONNECT by Christmas!
