WebUI 5 for Colleague

WebUI, the web user interface you may use to access Colleague will be upgraded to a new version in the next few months.  This new version will no longer require the use of Microsoft Silverlight plugin, which means you can use any of your favorite browsers such as Firefox, Chrome or Safari.

Please note that WebUI  is not TheHub.

Why a New Version?

The current version relies on Microsoft Silverlight plugin which is problematic for several reasons.  Foremost, Silverlight is begin decommissioned by Microsoft and will no longer be supported in the near future.  Secondly, changes by Chrome make Silverlight mostly non-functional.  Lastly, WebUI 5 will now use HTML5, the latest standard for web development.

When Will I See the New Version?

Over November we will have the new version of WebUI installed in our test environments and users will be notified to try it out.  We anticipate installing it in production around Thanksgiving, but that is speculation at this point.

You can view highlights and a demonstration at HampTV .
