Improvements since ISL Pronto 1.0.2 server module
Update user account refresh More
Application will now refresh all information, when user account information is changed on the server.
Chat line parser speedup More
Certain types of long chat lines containing http:// links used to take a lot of CPU power to parse, CPU usage was greatly reduced.
GRID (multiple server) support More
Module now supports running chat on more than server at once for load balancing purposes (previously, multiple servers were supported for backup replication only).
Improved multicore support More
Fine-grained support for running on multiple cores was added, each supporter or client object can run on a separate core.
Web server caching More
Web server can now fully cache all requests for scripts in memory, speedups from 10x to 100x are now possible (climbing up to several hundred requests per second on a regular hardware).
Template update XML More
Template can now be partially updated by a separate update XML file. For example: change only font-size for input box.

Chat transcripts More
Chat transcripts can now be sent to clients by click on "Send transcript by e-mail".

Wildcard DNS name for server is now optional, but still recommended. Without wildcard name, web chat will fall back to polling and response time for chat lines will increase up to 5 seconds instead of a couple milliseconds.
