Smaart v8.1 Beta Rev 4245 is now available for download. We heard your feedback, and we made a lot of realizations while using the beta in the field. The old data handling scheme wasn’t that great when you put it to the test, so we brought back a lot of what you all love about data handling in v7, while still maintaining the flexibility of the new v8 foundation.

For those of you already running the Beta build, you can update to the latest version using the built-in program updater by clicking File -> Check For Updates... within Smaart. The Beta Readme has been updated to include information about new features and bug fixes, you can view it by clicking Help -> Beta Readme within Smaart.
