A New z/Scope Anywhere is Arriving

 

z/Scope Anywhere 8 used from mobileA lot has been going on lately in Cybele Software, and the big news is, without a doubt, the reworking of one of our flagship products, z/Scope Anywhere.

This new incarnation of our Terminal Emulator for the Web brings several expected features:

 

  • New printer terminal support.
    • Integrated printer emulation: TN3287 and TN3812 printing terminals support implemented. Send print jobs to your browser-side printer, or download them to a file.
    • Easier access to printing job files: printing queues, print preview, and more.

 

  • New integration possibilities.
    • Direct access to the emulation screen through a dedicated virtual path per connection. Facilitate integration by allowing the user to bypass the landing page.
    • HLLAPI.js: new HLLAPI javascript interface to handle the integration of programmatic access from external applications to z/Scope.
    • Discardable connection URLs: by using One Time URL (OTURL) you can create a temporary, unique URL to provide single time access to a specific connection. This URL expires as soon as it’s used or after a specific period of time.
    • Secured access comes in many flavours: z/Scope Anywhere now provides multiple authentication options, including a simplified Single Sing-On. Enable access for end-users via one or more of these authentication methods: Logon, OAuth/2 (Google, Facebook, etc), RADIUS or customize the authentication process using a new provided security API.

 

  • Updated and flexible authentication scheme.
    • Provide anonymous access to connections, avoiding the login process.
    • Combine authenticated and anonymous access connections for logged in users.

 

  • Four connections running on grid mode.New and enhanced user interface.
    • New navigation and connection views. Classic, Coverflow, Gallery and Grid modes available.
    • Open new connections on different tabs or manage them within the z/Scope environment.
    • Create Display, Printer or Display and Printer connections.

 

This is only the big picture of what the new z/Scope Anywhere brings.

We’ve launched the first Beta version of z/Scope Anywhere 8 today and you can download it here. This new version of our existing HTML5 terminal emulator is more powerful and versatile than ever,  and in a few days we will be telling you more about it.
