JackBe officials said Presto 2.7 includes a more intuitive, user-focused
update of Presto Wires, the company's visual mashup composer, with many new
self-service features that increase the user's control of how, when and where
data is mashed, published and shared with others. Presto Wires also includes
enhancements to "Mashup Macros," or custom actions that can be
created on demand, reused and shared, making Presto extensible.
In addition, Presto 2.7 also features security enhancements that detect and
deny malicious code from public data sources like RSS, making it safer to
create mashups that harness public information, JackBe said.
"The customer demand for user empowerment is yet another indicator that
mashup creation is moving closer to the business user. Presto 2.7 is another
significant step in meeting that demand," said John Crupi, CTO
at JackBe, in a statement. "By empowering knowledge workers with the right
information at the right time, companies are able to achieve a 360 degree view
of their business to make faster and more effective decisions."
Also, to support the newly enhanced Mashup Macro feature of Presto Wires,
JackBe's Mashup Developer Community has announced a "Share your Mashup
Macros" contest. JackBe invites enterprise mashers who want to share their
Mashup Macros work, win prize money, earn recognition and perhaps even have
their Mashup Macros work included in the next edition of Presto. For more
