Improved graphics performance

00:10 27 August in General News

We made an important change to the graphics engine. It was possible to improve an already optimized code so that the rendering speed almost doubled. This is an important improvement as Persephone handles numerous visual elements on the screen and performance of the rendering engine is crucial to the user experience....

Migration to .NET 4.5 almost completed

00:12 26 August in General News

.NET 4.5 will allow us to use the latest versions of third party controls and a managed Oracle client that has a much smaller file size and works on both 32- and 64-bit machines. This allows the main application to be served from one location for different processor architectures. In addition, while migrating to .NET 4.5 we are re-factoring the data layer which will enable the application to work with other databases....
