Feb 27, 2015 - PingPlotter v4 Beta Available

PingPlotter v4 officially releases in April, but a beta version is available to license owners interested in helping us test. Simply login to your account to download.

Version 4 improvements focus on usability and performance. A refreshed interface helps get more done with fewer clicks and hundreds of small tweaks, upgrades, and bug fixes significantly improve speed and reliability. New alert options like REST calls and HTML formatted emails are available along with IPv6 and unicode character support. Professional edition adds several new tools for managing large target lists like user-defined groups, searchable lists, and multiple summary screens.

This is also the first release to serve three editions of PingPlotter with a single download. The shift won't make a big difference to license owners because the program runs as the edition associated with the license. Changing how versions work helps new users evaluate PingPlotter and improves the way we manage our code.

More information about the release is available here. Please, share your beta feedback (we love feedback!) by emailing beta@pingplotter.com.

We hope you enjoy. Thanks for using PingPlotter!
