Current release 3.5
This release includes several new features and some bug fixes. Here are the changes:
- Increased queuing speed for transactional emails
- Faster content block displays in Dynamic Content selection screens
- 50% split mailing capabilities without real-time optimization
- New pivot options for all Document reports
- New ability to designate a time zone for demographics

thousands of Content Blocks, the selection screen to choose one for Dynamic Content was slow
to display. Now it is considerably faster.

create mailings that send different versions of the email to each half of the
people on your list, without adjustments based on the results.
More pivot report options than ever - The pivot feature has been extended
to work with document reports as well as well as promotional mailings. For the email
marketer that makes extensive use of API-based mailings, this feature makes your
work easier with the ability to see in an instant which mailings are the most effective.
New ability to designate a time zone for demographics - With dynamic content,
segmentation, and other scheduled tasks the system needs to know the time zone of a demographic
column in order to make the proper date calculations. Now the system supports designating a
time zone for demographics, so it will know that 3:00pm means 3:00pm EST, for example.

of failures when sending emails and tuning of the mail sending engine for optimal
