Blaise 4.8 Enterprise is the successor of Blaise 4.7 Enterprise. It contains the Blaise basic system, the Blaise Component Pack and the Blaise Internet Services. Here we describe the differences in the Blaise basic system part of 4.8 compared to the previous version (4.7). All differences are listed below.
In Version 4.8 a number of changes / extensions are available. The highlights are:

- Blaise Server. Client-Server based Blaise data access using TCP/IP.
- Menu Editor. Extended functionality and supported by Blaise Internet.
- Datamodel. It is now possible to define multiple layout sections for a block giving you more control over the page layout in a multi mode environment. Manipula procedures are supported as alien procedure / alien router.
- DEP. Support for the Basil HTML-subset in texts has been added at several places. This allows for instance for hyper-links and images embedded in texts.
- CATI. Server based CATI management and a number of functional extensions.
- Manipula / Maniplus. Many extensions allowing for instance better integration of the DEP and Manipula plus meta data access. Support for generic setups which allows for passing the .BMI file as a run-time parameter (late binding).

- Delta, the Blaise Documentation tool. A first version of a rules viewer of the datamodel has been added. Delta is now a .NET 2.0 application.
