We are happy to announce the release of SmartInspect 3.2, a new version of our advanced Java logging, .NET logging and Delphi logging tool. Besides adding often requested features to the Console and logging libraries, we made some major changes to the SmartInspect Console in how it loads and processes log files, reducing the memory usage during log file loading drastically and making it faster in general.
We've also upgraded the Console to make use of the latest development tools and third-party components available, integrating it better with Windows Vista and preparing it for Windows 7. To learn more about SmartInspect, please visit our website.
