Woburn, MA---Inmagic, Inc., leading developer of library automation and information retrieval software for the Web, intranets, CD-ROM and LANs, today announced new versions of two of its products: DB/TextWorks version 3.0, designed for library automation on desktops and networks (Windows(r) 95/NT); and DB/Text WebPublisher version 3.0, Inmagic's NT-server based software for Web and intranet publishing.

DB/TextWorks 3.0 Feature Highlights

Topping the list of DB/TextWorks 3.0 new features is a powerful spell checker with 100,000-word American and British dictionaries which can be customized by users. Other new DB/TextWorks features include an extended character search option, where users may optionally index accented characters as their unaccented equivalents; database administration features, including automatic update processing to save time and reduce network traffic; and a number of additional ease-of-use enhancements designed to save time and keystrokes.

DB/Text WebPublisher 3.0 Feature Highlights

DB/Text WebPublisher 3.0 contains new ease-of-use features along with maintenance and design enhancements. WebPublisher's unique "word wheel" index browsers now include scrollbars, enabling better navigation. Greater flexibility for web designers is reflected in many new features. For example, the designer can now build "see also" links into a WebPublisher report. When the report is displayed, each author's name, to give one example, can be a "jump" to a report containing all other works by the same author. Similarly, entries in a field can become Email targets or URL jumps.

"Inmagic is committed to keeping our products state-of-the-art with regular product upgrades," said Inmagic president and CEO Phillip Green. "Our customers tend to let us know what new features they'd find useful. Because of that, a number of new features in both DB/TextWorks and DB/Text WebPublisher originate from Inmagic user feedback to our 'wishlist.' Our users know we take their ideas seriously."
