If you are a fan on the Impero Software Facebook page you will have seen a screenshot of our new log viewer. The Impero Software code monkeys have worked away and that is one of many changes making its way to the software for BETT show.

The next stable release will be 3506 which recently has gone into beta testing. As well as a some bug fixes this includes a number of new features. As I mentioned before the log viewer changes will be part of the BETT build which is due out in January.

As I just mentioned above the other week our software was penetration tested. A tester from an independent security company spent two days in the Impero test chamber trying to hack us. The network was setup to mimic a typical school environment.

The software passed as they were unable to hack it. In fact it got glowing praise from the person conducting the test.

and finally…

I thought I would share a kind comment that came via a Facebook message from the great John Smith from Settle College when I told him what was coming up in 3506: –

“Sounds great smileyou guys are brilliant at listening to customers”

I think this sums up Impero very well…
