I’m proud to announce that our biggest release ever has reached an important milestone today; we’ve released Táve 4 to our Quality Assurance team. If you’ve filed any help desk tickets lately you may be familiar with Booker and Chris, who have been helping us focus our attention on this release and will now assist us in delivering it.

Táve Version 4

We’ve been working on aspects of this release since last September and Jason and I moved to full-time development in December. Since then we’ve previewed early iterations at Imaging USA and WPPI. If you’re interested in seeing some of the early screenshots taken during those shows, just join the Táve Users Group on Facebook to browse these two private albums in the group: a comprehensive Feature tour at Imaging USA from January and a smaller preview of T4 Updates at WPPI showing changes since Imaging USA the month before, including our new mobile-responsive design.

We’ll announce a release date once the system has been fully vetted, any significant issues resolved, and our new community-editable in-app documentation (another new feature) is sufficiently comprehensive. Please keep in mind that this release is massive, even eclipsing our Táve 3 release three years ago, having submitted our 2,800th source code revision earlier today. Because of the scope and breadth of this release and our focus on quality, we anticipate spending some time in this stage, so keep an eye out for our next Táve 4 post.

    Can’t wait guys. I know I have spent countless hours on LiveChat with the two of you over the last year hashing out ideas and can’t wait to see and most importantly start using the new Tave 4. You guys have put a tremendous amount of time and effort into this release, so thanks in advance for trying to build something to make all of our lives easier and more efficient! Your cult following is steadily growing, probably exponentially with this release.

    Good to hear. I am going to do a trial of Shootq and Tave this month to choose one to use. If Tave is able to be tried, you might just get another subscriber.

      I am not affiliated with the Tave team in any way, but I’d be very careful about committing to ShootQ. Ever since they were purchased by Pictage a few years ago, their development and support has gone down the toilet. I really think it’s a dead-end product.

      Tave’s not perfect, but nothing is. But 3 was a MAJOR step in the right direction and everything I’ve seen for 4 looks like it’s going to reach prime time. I appreciate the development team’s long-term commitment to the project, and the new features keep coming. I remember being on Tave 2 and being jealous of ShootQ features. Not anymore. I think they are experiencing somewhat of an exodus over at ShootQ.

    Glad to hear guys! I know you’ve had your blinders on a lot lately getting ready to pump this bad boy out. Can’t wait to see it! If you need another set of eyes on the Beta team, I’m in!
