1. CG Class Grid and Object Editor dialog display instances and slot
values

Two new tools added to Common Graphics in release 8.1 are the Class
Grid and the Object Editor. These tools are useful for examining and
specifying lists of instances (for the Class Grid) and slot values
(for the Object Editor). There is a worked out example in the document
Creating an Object-Editor Dialog or Class-Grid Programmatically.

View the dialogs created by that example with some commentary here:

2. SSL update allows enhanced protocol and cipher specification

In a recent update to Allegro CL, the functions that create SSL client
and server streams (make-ssl-client-stream and make-ssl-server-stream)
have been enhanced to allow more precise specification of the
handshake protocol and specification of the cipher to be used.

As to ciphers, you can now specify the named ciphers you wish to use
or not use. You normally specify several choices and the strongest
common cipher on the list of the server and client is then chosen.

3. Free Web Seminar: GeoTemporal Reasoning in a Web 3.0 World
(as presented at GeoWeb 2008 in July)

Enterprises have begun utilizing semantic technologies and standards

Enterprise. We conducted this talk and demonstration at the GeoWeb
