Nice to hear that! About adding new users, you can of course add them 
manually if you go to Security, Users, Add user. This user will be 
automatically added to group All users. Add him manually to group 
Registered users and set access rights (view/update rights to your App 

Yes I know, this security setup app is sooo old fashioned, but FYI, it 
is my first web app back from 1996 :) And it needs rewrite, I know.... 
Security documentation is also waiting for that rewrite.

Well, auto registration is not yet quite completed, but it would be easy 
to do. You can use VW SMTP client for that. Maybe for a little exercise 
for you? :)
