1.1 Upgrade AcuToWeb Runtime

The site has been upgraded to the latest version of AcuToWeb. The new version promises to deliver better handling in the event of a connection drop. If there is a drop in connection, the runtime will try to connect to the same session for up to 30 seconds before it is closed.

A message “Trying to reconnect…” will be displayed during this time. You can continue working once the connection has been established again.

The usual message, “Do you want to leave the page”, should display less frequently now, allowing for an improved experience.
