A Note on Batch It Ultra

We are in the midst of developing Batch It Ultra v4 which is a major re-write to the current Batch It Ultra v3 which was introduced in 2004. This will put it inline with the current offerings we have for Windows.

We are preserving as many features from the old version to the new version and adding new ones. However, due to several new constraints and other related changes, we are dropping several features. The prominent of which is the Thumbnail Gallery Generator. We would be looking at working on a brand new version of Web It which would be offered to you free of charge when it is ready.

This new version would include a parameter based support which would allow you to run the application as a command line application or as a Windows Scheduler based application. This support would be offered as beta version when the new release of Batch It Ultra v4 is introduced.

We plan to release Batch It Ultra sometime in December 2011 or early January 2012 and any customer who purchase this from September 1st 2011 would get this major upgrade for free.

The partial delay of this update was due to several reasons. One of which was the shifting of some of our resources in developing the Mac and Cross-Platform Applications while we waited for clear directions from Microsoft as to Windows 8. At the offset, it did appear that Windows 8 would only support HTML5 apps which would mean a major rewrite of the application but with the introduction of the Developer Preview version last week, it is clear that they would run native Windows application too on the desktop platform. As such, we would be moving on with the development of Batch It Ultra v4.

Thank you for your patience.
