In case you haven’t heard or noticed, we removed the beta tag off of Iguana 4.5 today. The entire development team has been anticipating this release for quite some time and we are pleased to officially release it to the public.
Since we released 4.5 in beta two months ago, we’ve done extensive testing to reach our goals for stability and performance. We would also like to thank users who downloaded the beta version and submitted useful feedback.
Some of the key new features in Iguana 4.5 include:
- FTP Support
- Faster Log Searching
- Improved Message Resubmission
- Enhanced User Management
Prior to the release today, I had the opportunity to hold a webinar to highlight the new features and answer a few questions from those who attended. The 15 minute recorded webinar can be viewed below:

… but, what does that actually mean?
It’s the result from one of our successful builds of the 64 bit version of Iguana on Windows. Dmitri – one of the very talented developers who works hard behind the scenes here at iNTERFACEWARE to make all your HL7 integration dreams come true – did a fantastic job of putting together this latest 64 bit build.
If you’re interested in being one of the first to try out Iguana 4.1 (beta) on 64 bit Windows, you can find the latest build on our ftp site.
HIMSS was a blast – I’m just back into the swing of things again in Toronto. For the last two weeks I’ve been busy interviewing developers – I guess I ought to delegate that task. But the choice of people you hire seems to be one of the most important things one can do in a software company so I still like to be hands on in this area. If you know anyone, we’re looking for people with top notch C++ skills and/or web interface AJAX type skillsets (it’s odd to get these two skill sets together so we’ll consider either or).
Thanks to everyone that made the effort to visit us at HIMSS and I apologize for some of you who dropped by when I was busy during demos. We got a lot more traffic than we anticipated and think most of us didn’t get the time to walk the floor, etc. as much as we hoped. Next time we’ll staff the booth up more – it felt hard to step away.
I guess for me it was a clear validation we’d picked the right strategy with our focus on Iguana 4.0. Over the last year and half I spent an awful lot of time talking to customers, understanding where the practical issues occur and figuring out how we could solve them. Inside the company we spent hours agonizing over the UI and usability issues. To be honest, I was not certain if customers would value all the effort we put into the product in that area – but to judge from the reaction at HIMSS we got an overwhelming vote of confidence.
We’re very proud to officially announce the launch of Iguana 4.0. This is a major milestone for all of us at iNTERFACEWARE. With months of design, development, QA and stress-testing behind us, everyone is very excited to see just how quickly – and easily – our customers have been taking to the new release.
