Variman 3.1 Released

Chicago, September 23, 2009: The Center for REALTOR® Technology is excited to announce, as promised early last month, the release of the latest version of Variman – The Open Source and Free RETS Server. Variman version 3.1 is fully RETS 1.5, 1.7 and 1.7.2 compliant, as per the NAR MLS Board Policy requirement that all MLSs be RETS compliant by December 2009.  In addition to being fully compliant, version 3.1 has an advanced graphical admin tool that will simplify editing the complex metadata file.

As always, Variman is free to download, install and use – and the same level of support will continue to be offered through the mailing lists.
