MonoX 4.9 & 5.0 Beta 1 is out!

02/03/2014Categories: MonoX, ASP.NET

For the last couple of months, we have been working hard on MonoX v. 4.9 to get the benefits of the new UI to our users. The new front-end is based on the SaSS theme that will be the default theme from now on. We have also redesigned the installation and administration interface. The end result: MonoX now follows the responsive design approach in all its sections (installation, front end, administration back end). We have also pushed MonoX 5.0 Beta 1 out for community preview. V. 5.x introduces many API changes required to implement dependency injection container (Ninject) and IoC architecture.
