The long-awaited, updated version of Mantis has finally arrived. Although still in beta version, it is "fully functional and will never expire." I am ordering (thanks to my very generous advisor) FileMaker Pro 8.5 so I can use all the cool web-publishing features. So excited. A stand-alone version is also available if you don't have Filemaker. I have used the old version for the past several years to keep track of my ever-growing database of Amazonian ant specimens and have been very satisfied with it. I do have a few complaints, and am hoping they will be fixed in the new version. So, give it a try if you are so inclined. It can be found here.
