ImmoTool 1.0-beta40 released

We are happy to announce the release of ImmoTool 1.0-beta40. Besides a lot of improvements the most important changes are:

  • The HSQL database was updated to version 2.3.5. This update provides a lot of optimizations and improvements, that were integrated into the database during the last few years.
  • The application bundles did not work correctly with macOS Sierra anymore. Therefore we’ve rewritten the application bundles and startup scripts.

How do I get the latest version?

  • If you already have installed the program, you can use the auto update mechanism (via Main menu » Extras » Updates).
  • You can find the latest installation packages in the download area. You can find older version of the program within the users area.

Important: Notes for macOS users

The automatic update procedure does not update the application bundles. Therefore you have to download ImmoTool 1.0-beta40 separately. Please remove the old application folder and extract the downloaded archive in order to update the application.

If macOS shows a warning during startup about an unverifed developer, please right click to the application and select “Open”. By following this procedure you can allow the application to start nevertheless.

ImmoTool 1.0-beta40 is not usable with previous versions of the ImmoTool-Server. Before updating to ImmoTool 1.0-beta40 you should update ImmoTool-Server to version 1-0-beta3 in the following way:
