Release 5.1.1

Innovative and user-friendly

New in this release are the so-called 'Perspectives', which show you the right user interface when you use the system in different modes. Currently, four modes are supported with corresponding 'perspectives':

  • Project and Task Management - the classic perspective you may already know
