Version 0.21 is now available
« on: April 10, 2010, 06:39:38 pm »
Elve v0.21 is now available for download.

Elve, formerly known as J9 Automation Engine is now available at with free time-limited licenses during the public beta period.

IMPORTANT: After upgrading to version 0.21, each Elve user account must be edited, choose a default touch screen and save. You must save each user account even if you do not change the default touch screen. The user will not have access to touch screens until this is done.

This version has been updated to include our new name, graphics, installation path and other changes related to our new name. Running setup.exe will upgrade your previous J9AE version and migrate your configuration files.

Major changes below have been highlighted blue.
