Woburn, MA – Inmagic, Inc. (www.inmagic.com), a leading developer of knowledge and special library management software, announces the release of version 5.2 of its flagship product, DB/TextWorks, which includes the Web publishing components DB/Textâ WebPublisher and WebPublisher Lite. Version 5.2 now features record level security, support for XML, as well as other enhancements.

“Record level security allows knowledge workers to customize access to particular sets of information,” states Phillip Green, CEO of Inmagic. “Varying permissions can be assigned to different users of a textbase that filter the information they are allowed to view or modify,” he explains. An example of record level security in action is the implementation of a union catalog. With record level security, each library is able to make changes to its own set of records while being denied permission to change the records of other libraries.

With the release of version 5.2, Inmagic databases have the ability to import XML file formats, adding a third format to the two file formats already supported: ASCII delimited and Inmagic tagged. XML is an emerging standard for sharing data between applications. Because XML files support information tagging similar to HTML files, information can be manipulated in very flexible ways.

Version 5.2 of DB/TextWorks is available to those who have enrolled in Inmagic's InmagicADVANTAGE maintenance program.
