Civility in critiquing the ideas of others is no vice. Rudeness in defending your own ideas is no virtue.

Rather than wait for perfection, I went ahead and released the Midas Version 3.30 Help db for download.  The problems with it are primarily in the @Midas Formulas documents, which are not complete, but since the Gold release is not quite ready for @Midas, and the Midas Rich Text LSX Version 3.30 has been released, I thought it was better to get it out like this than never get it out, as happened for the Version 3.20 Help db, which was only ever available on-line.  Of course, the latest version is still always available on-line.

If you see anything in the Help that shouldn't be, or do not see something that should, please let me know and I'd be happy to make sure it gets corrected.  There will be another release with the final details cleaned up and the @Midas Formulas documents complete.

Oh, and one note for those who have used the Midas Help db in the past.  While the replication id is the same, the database name has changed from rthelp4.nsf to MidasHelp.nsf.  It is a far more sensible name, but I am sure somebody will download this, unzip the file, check the database and then write to tell me the changes aren't in there.  It is inevitable.

Genii Software is pleased to announce the release of the Midas Rich Text LSX Version 3.30, with significant enhancements to the HTML generation engine, the HTML import engine, and the rich text manipulation engine.  This version stresses stability, performance, and breadth of support for ND 6/6.5 constructs.

The Midas Rich Text LSX gives Notes/Domino developers real control over Notes rich text fields using simple LotusScript classes. Add the power to program rich text, re-shape it to meet your specifications and integrate it into your application workflow. Create and control high quality, standards based HTML.  Sort, create, rearrange and transform tables, sections, hotspots, links and other rich text elements. Utilize features such as dynamic link creation and wildcard search/replace to build powerful template driven applications in Notes and on the Web.  The Midas Rich Text LSX is currently available for Windows 95/98/NT/XP/2000/2003, OS/2 and AIX for Notes/Domino 4.5x, 4.6x, 5.x, 6.x and 6.5x.

Read the press release, or visit the Midas Rich Text LSX page for additional information.

In addition to the features themselves, we have released a number of new samples to help explain and demonstrate what Midas can do.  Try out our Export to MS WordExport to MIMEExport to HTML/XHTML, and Report It! samples now, and watch in a few days for Resourceful Images and Picture This! which will show how to use image resources and graphics with Midas.
