• RSS (Real Simple Syndication) support on the Web -Link II Home Page. Easily add custom data to your Web -Link II Home Page such as weather forecasts, sports scores, news, personal blogs, and much more.
• New Web -Link II Touchscreen User Interface.
• New Skins to choose from to customize the look and feel of the web pages by applying different graphic and color schemes. You can have a different skin for each client computer or Windows account that is used to log into Web -link II.
• Improved support for sending and logging emails.
• Setup now addresses Windows Firewall, directory security, and SP2 security permissions issues.
