Baltsoft, an information technology company, has released General Knowledge Base 2.1. Designed for the Windows platforms, GKB provides a centralized location for documents, images, and other types of files, which are organized into the searchable knowledge base. Using the built-in, Word-style editing facility, the knowledge base can be edited and its content can be accessed locally over a network or remotely over the Internet. It supports tables, hyperlinks, styles, right-to-left languages, and spell check. Customers can export articles created in GKB to many popular formats, including TXT, RTF, DOC, HTML, XML, and PDF.
