ListMessenger Pro 2.0 hits the streets on Tuesday, May 17th, 2005. Yes, I said ListMessenger Pro 2.0 and yes, I said Tuesday, May 17th, 2005 and I delighted to be making this announcement.

After over a year an a half in development and a full version number increase I am pleased to announce ListMessenger Pro 2.0 which will be available on Tuesday, May 17th, 2005. ListMessenger 1.1 never did do this release justice and I’ve known that for months now, but wanted to make it a surprise for all ListMessenger users.

I realize that I have said this release will be released in the past; however, I can assure you that you will have it this Tuesday. The reason being… that it’s already done. Yes, I have the distribution file on my desktop now and it’s just about ready to go. We have some small house cleaning to take care of before we can release it which is why it won’t be available until Tuesday.

Here are a few of the many new major features:

  • Complete rewrite of ListMessenger 1.0 codebase.
  • Custom e-mail fields support.
  • E-Mail attachements and managment support.
  • Subscriber importing and exporting system.
  • Enhanced backup and restore system.
  • Unlimited group levels.
  • Select and send to multiple groups at once.
  • Subscribe and unsubscribe notificiations.
  • HTMLArea 3.0 rich text editor for Mozilla, Firefox, Netscape and Internet Explorer.
  • Enhanced message archives.
  • Moveable public and private folders.
  • Upgrade from all previous releases of ListMessenger.
  • Fantastic User Guide (Manual) by Erik Geurts.
  • Error logging.
  • No more pop-up window during sending.
  • New icon set.
  • Much more.

More details will follow in the next 24 hours as we upgrade our website and Members Area to reflect the new release. One other thing I wanted to mention was ListMesseger Light 2.0 will be on it’s way shortly as well. After I get ListMessenger Pro released, it’s just a matter of making some code adjustments for the Light version. Without giving a release date for ListMessenger Light 2.0, I would say it should be out shortly as well.

Thinking about purchasing ListMessenger Pro now but are thinking of waiting? Either way is fine; however, there is always Free Lifetime Upgrades with ListMessenger so have no fears!

Enjoy and good night.
