Project: VIC CRM for Notes (Managed by Dave Leigh)

VIC CRM STATUS:
I was hoping for a new interim release today, but it ain't gonna happen, sorry. The usual year-end pressures at work have taken precedence for the moment. HOWEVER, good progress is still being made on VIC CRM! Rob's done a lot of work on the back-end mail import agents, and I am making good time on the background document synchronization. I've tied the UI "Select Contact", etc. functionality into this, consolidating a boatload of agents into one script. Unfortunately, I had to break a lot of existing functionality in order to make it much, much better.
You'll get a LOT of benefit from the new synchronization routines if you need to customize VIC for your company or for a particular client. They are data-driven so you'll be able to add custom fields to the fieldmap documents in the config db and inherit them to related docs with little or no additional code. I think you'll like the changes.
Meanwhile, Rob's new routine allows for control of the server-side agent from the global profile in VIC itself, which should make your CRM administrator very happy!
I'm still working on synchronization, and as I simply don't want to release something this important that's not quite ready, look for something next weekend.
We're still looking for a documentation writer, so if you are or know anyone who's interested in contributing to OSS, please consider this project. Otherwise you're likely to be stuck with whatever I cobble together in whatever time I have!
