Woburn, MA – Inmagic, Inc. (www.inmagic.com), a leading developer of knowledge and special library management software, announces the release of version 5.0 of its flagship product, DB/TextWorks, which includes the Web publishing components DB/Textâ WebPublisher and WebPublisher Lite. Version 5.0 now features relevance ranking as well as other enhancements.

“Relevance ranking allows users to spend less time searching for information,” states Phillip Green, CEO of Inmagic. “It gives them the ability to sort reports so that records most similar to search criteria appear first. This creates huge savings in time and efficiency for our customers,” he explains. Adds Graham Beastall of Soutron Limited, an Inmagic dealer based in the UK, “Version 5.0 of DB/TextWorks gives librarians the ability to provide their users with simple and refined searching similar to that provided to users by systems costing many times that of DB/TextWorks.”

Relevance ranking is not the only new feature enabled through version 5.0. While performing database maintenance activities such as checking a database for errors, users now have the ability to simultaneously rebuild indexes when using version 5.0. This enhanced functionality allows users to perform database maintenance activities more easily with less time expended.

The product's e-mail capabilities have also been expanded, creating easier, less time consuming and more powerful experiences for users. Reports sent via e-mail can now include attachments. In addition, user-defined scripts can now send e-mail without requiring parameters to be supplied by the user. This saves time and accuracy during repetitive e-mail tasks.

Enhanced display features allow users in DB/Tex WebPublisher or WebPublisher Lite to review detailed and summary information at the same time. Expanded record displays can now appear in separate browser windows, giving users the option to point, click and manipulate information with more flexibility.

Version 5.0 of DB/TextWorks is available to those who have enrolled in Inmagic's new InmagicADVANTAGE maintenance program.
