Emissary 2.0 is chockful of new features. Powerful functions give you access to all kinds of information and the ability to manipulate it. We've taken the 1.1 paradigm of drag-'n-drop and cross-object integration to new levels in this version.
Here's what Emissary 2.0 (Beta) looks like today. Web, Mail, News, File (FTP), and Host Access - which would be the "applications" in other products - are fully integrated Services or "objects" on the left side of the Emissary screen. Each Service is "best of breed."
... Take a walk through Emissary 2.0's New features...
The web surfing Service is an HTML 3.0-Netscape-Explorer compliant web browser, but it doesn't stop at that. It is also a fully What-You-See-Is-What-You-Get (WYSIWYG) HTML editor. This component supports tables, frames, embedded objects, in-line plug-ins, and much more. [Complete feature list]
The email Service is a fully MIME-HTML compliant multimedia client with support for advanced features like multimedia attachments in-line, filtering, autoforwarding, autoreplying, spell-checking, advanced addressing, archiving, offline operation etc. [Complete feature list]
The news Service is a state-of-the-art USENET newsreader with SSL support, automatic decoding and display of images, offline mode, asynchronous operations, spam defense, bozo lists, multiple folder support, article locking etc. [Complete feature list]
The files Service looks a lot like the Windows 95 Explorer (it was designed to look and work that way almost 2 years ago!) but with such advanced features like remote site management, file transfer and retrieval across the Internet, editing on remote filesystems, total drag-'n-drop support etc. [Complete feature list]
The host access Service is our own little terminal emulator supporting VT100 emulation, drag-'n-drop, colors, fonts, multiple sessions, cut-and-paste etc.
The main shell of Emissary is a powerful front-end to the COLT architecture that Emissary is based on and supports customizable toolbars, a drag-'n-drop tray, intelligent Agents, messages and notifications, on-the-fly virus checking, customizable themes, history lists, component manager, external application manager etc. [Complete feature list]
