FDM 5.0 Alfa

Friday, December 28th, 2012

Dear Users!

Christmas is wonderful time for giving gifts! And our development team has also prepared one for all FDM users and fans. The last design draft presented several months ago has been refined and improved. Based on this work, a prototype of the new software has been recently created.
Presenting the FDM 5.0 Alfa version on this Forum, we just want to gather some statistics and your feedbacks concerning the new look of our program.

For all old FDM design fans, we’ve just released the new 3.9.2 version which can be downloaded from our official download page.
You can install and try our new FDM 5.0 version without uninstalling the old one.

The new FDM 5.0 has been designed to bring all the best from its old ‘big brother’, as well as to simplify the downloading process in general. Besides working on the modern and intuitive HTML5 interface, our development team made an effort to improve the overall FDM functionality. For instance, full Unicode support was added. Settings page was also redesigned: most experienced settings were moved into the ‘Advanced’ section.
What’s more, a built-in support page was added to allow our users contact our support team directly from the program’s interface. Please feel free to send us any bug reports, questions, as well as express your ideas regarding the adding new features by using this form.

As I have mentioned above, it’s only a prototype version, and we need some more time to bring it to the conditions compared with the 3.9 version and to implement new features that are most required by FDM users. However, I am sure, we will be able to do all the best thanks to your active collaboration.
