We’ve been working hard on a new version of our HelpSmith product. This important update will have support for video files, improved repository for the project’s media. Also, it will include fixes of different minor problems reported by our users. HelpSmith 1.4 is to be a more stable and faster version due to some new techniques we’re using.
At the same time, we’ve been working on a new help format known as browser-based help (or Web Help). The given format will allow you to place the whole help system to your Internet web server or just to make it available through a local network. Such an online help system has a set of benefits that I will describe in one of the future posts. The Web Help format is planned to be available in the next HelpSmith update after the version 1.4 is released.
