We have been extremely busy in the last weeks with the complete refactoring of the OutWit Kernel, preparing the way for the advanced automation functionalities of OutWit Hub Pro. The coming version 0.8.9 will be the first using our new core library. You will not see very radical changes yet, except for the scraper editor, which should make many of you happy. Here are the changes that you will find:
– The brand new scraper manager and editor
– The big red Stop button that many have been asking for (which, by the way, also allows to abort ‘Apply Scraper to URLs’ processes)
– A few changes in the interface, to prepare the integration of new automators in the following versions.
We will then soon release version 0.9 of the Kernel. As for all previous pre-releases, our outfits (including OutWit Hub Pro) will still be offered to you for free during a beta-test period of a few weeks. If you register as a beta tester during that period, you will then have the options to either purchase the 1.0 version at a reduced price when it is released, or to revert to the Light version (which will remain free and feature most of the functions you have been using up to versions 0.8.x., including the scrapers, but without the latest additions).
