1. New support for Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2)

There is a new Allegro CL module which provides an interface to the
Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) API. Available to supported
Enterprise Edition customers, the new interface works on all platforms
that support SSH (only 64-bit Mac OS X does not support SSH at this
time). For Express or Professional Edition users interested in an
evaluation, please send a request to info@franz.com.

You'll need the just released update to use the functionality.

The interface and the new functionality are described in:
http://franz.com/support/documentation/current/doc/ec2.htm

For information on getting and installing updates, see:
http://franz.com/support/patches/

2. Enhancements to the IDE Project System

A number of enhancements to the Integrated Development Environment
project system, particularly to the handling of subprojects, were
provided in an updated release in late Fall, 2008. These enhancements
are documented in Appendix C of the Common Graphics and the Integrated
Development Environment guide.

4. Recorded Webinar: Selecting the RIGHT Database for your Project

This seminar discusses the similarities and differences between
relational databases, object oriented databases and RDF triple
stores. We cover several topics for consideration when trying to
decide which type of database to use for development of an
application. Franz Inc. has been in the business of supporting
relational databases for over 20 years, object oriented databases for
over 10 years and RDF triple stores now for 4 years. During this
presentation we look at a number of customer use cases and offer our
informed perspective on data storage technologies.
