This time, the focus is on usability. The new design has a modern, clean and professional look with a proper menu structure at the top of the page. New features include:

  • Personal preferences including font size and archive browsing options
  • Archives now fully support HTML and multipart messages
  • List management and configuration has been improved
  • Archives can be read as RSS and Atom feeds

You can see L-Soft's interactive product demos here.

JISCmail have always maintained a policy of keeping LISTSERV up to date, in order to bring you the latest features, reliability and usability that the product has to offer. Upgrading to LISTSERV 15.0 is currently scheduled on JISCmail for Quarter 1, 2007 to allow for various testing, modifications to our backend systems and JISCmail-added functionality such as surveys. The new interface is backwards compatible with existing customisations to list homepages, so no forced changes should be necessary there. More information will be provided

at a later date. In the meantime, if you have any comments on the interface in the demo above please do let us know by contacting helpline@jiscmail.ac.uk and we will compile any feedback to LSoft.
