Finally upgrading to 3.1.1

Doug Gault APEX Leave a Comment

In the wonderful world of commercial software development, adoption of technology tends to happen in a bit of a “leap-frog” fashion. For instance, our current release of HAWCS is coded using 2.2.1 of ApEx, but we’re getting ready to add some new features to our upcoming 2.1 release that very specifically take advantage of ApEx 3.1 features.
