GoldMine Premium Edition sees it’s first patch, version 8.0.1 (aka 8.00.70621)

This patch is the first patch since the initial release of GoldMine Premium Edition (8.0) a few months ago. It brings with it a long list of fixes and improvements that make GoldMine Premium Edition a compelling choice for 6.x users adrift in the sea of doubt brought about by recent product focus changes at Frontrange.

Some interesting highlights from the release notes:

Support for Microsoft Office 2007 enables integration with the latest versions of Microsoft Word, Excel, and Outlook. Also, the Word and Excel links now are optional components of the main GoldMine installation, rather than being installed separately.

Enhanced Account Rollup provides a clearer picture of the activities associated with an account, by including the name of each contact within the Pending and History tabs. To enable this feature, go to Tools>Options>Record and check “Show contact name on activity tabs”. To see an account rollup for a particular record, go to the Relationships tab, select a section of an organization, and click Rollup.

The process of unlinking and relinking email messages has been improved to reduce errors which previously caused users to accidentally remove email addresses from contact records.

The One-button Installer now supports installation directly to a Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Express database.

GoldMine Premium Edition now supports Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Service Pack 2 (SP2).

GoldMine Premium Edition now supports Windows Server 2003 R2, Service Pack 2 (SP2).
