We are pleased to announce the release of the new version of the Simplicité Software platform. This is version 3.1, which is a little more than a year of development.
The improvements concern all the sides of the platform.
Substantial work has been done on the overall performance of the Simplicité platform through a finer management of the memory of objects and their loading time.
Application development is greatly simplified with the arrival of a new multi-tab scripting editor, a completely redesigned business module management and, above all, the appearance of scopes dedicated to an application domain. We are also seeing the arrival of new cloud as a service (PaaS) platforms, such as RedHat OpenShift and Heroku.
They are in addition to the already supported CloudFoundry PaaS: IBM Bluemix and Pivotal Web Services. Simplicité also runs on Docker containers. We do not forget the On-Premise with the official support of JDK8.
We have enriched REST services and simplified access to business objects between Simplicité instances. We now also offer new native connectors to Salesforce and OpenDataSoft.
Apart from the usual Ajax, Android, Flex … APIs, we now offer new OpenSource APIs hosted on GitHub to facilitate the development of specific frontends in DevOps mode, in particular with the Node.js and NodeRED technologies.

The Simplicité Software platform running on an application server, see several, we had to propose a simplified administration of Clusters, it is now done with the new screens of monitoring of the cluster and the management of the nodes.
Finally, a new graphic identity enriched the user experience by lightening the interfaces without losing functionality.
This new major release just released, we can already tell you that a first minor version is in progress. It will also bring a lot of new features (management of EAN barcodes, new system parameters, …). More details soon. Of course, our R & D teams are working hard on the next major iteration.
