Traction TeamPage’s Proteus interface provides new generation Web UI based on Google technology

TeamPage’s Proteus user interface provides a completely new way of interacting with TeamPage, based on Google's Web Toolkit. Designed from the ground up for speed and ease of use, Proteus makes it much easier for users of all levels to make the most of TeamPage's unique and powerful capabilities. Proteus lays the foundation for a new generation of TeamPage interfaces by extending the ability of Traction Software, independent developers and customers to use the best Web interface technology.

TeamPage Software Developer Kit (SDK) customers can customize and extend the Proteus interface using Traction’s Skin Definition Language (SDL), which has been enhanced to support building Google Web Toolkit interfaces using simple templates.

Unlike products with hard-coded interfaces, Proteus becomes a new member of the family of TeamPage user interfaces available at the same time on a TeamPage server and selected by individual preference, server default settings, or automatically based on rules that match an interface to a particular browser (e.g., a Blackberry Web browser versus a laptop’s Windows Internet Explorer). The Proteus upgrade will be free for all customers who have software maintenance.
