Seagull Scientific has released version 8.0 of its BarTender software, which lets users design and print industrial labels containing bar codes, text, graphics, and RFID tags. The highlight of the new release is the introduction of an Enterprise Print Server edition. This provides centralized print management functions for submitting numerous network print jobs for processing by a single copy of BarTender running on a server. For very high-load applications, users have the option of installing additional copies of BarTender at no extra cost. The new edition also includes technology for the selection and printing of label jobs from Web browsers running on any operating system.
The Enterprise Print Server edition also includes a variety of new, advanced integration capabilities. These include TCP/IP socket connectivity for controlling BarTender from other programs without regard for operating platform, such as AS/400, Linux, UNIX, AIX, or Windows. New XML capabilities, including automated XML format conversion using XSL style sheets, provide additional options for handling XML print requests from Oracle's WMS and MSCA applications.
Other new features include drop-down and scroll box list options in the BarTender forms designer and support for dozens of additional graphic formats. A working trial edition is available for free download from Seagull's Web site.
