A major milestone release of its 5.0 version was released in July, 2011 featuring a completely overhauled web interface and over 3,500 improvements from the previous version. This new release was awarded 5 of 5 star rating from the CNet Editors at Download.com, where it typically ranks in the top 10 out of over 1300 business applications.
NolaPro is cross-platform, installs locally on Microsoft Windows and Linux, and is accessible from most operating systems including Mac OS, Unix, and SunOS. NolaPro uses a MySQL backend and is accessed via a web browser.

NolaPro is also available as an on-demand hosted service (cloud/SaaS model) directly from the author, and offers a free license for partners, CPAs and consultants who wish to host and resell it as a client service.
Multi-currency is available for NolaPro, making it one of the few small applications which will fluidly support monetary exchange rates. An API is also available (beta) for developers who wish to integrate NolaPro with their in-house or 3rd party applications.
NolaPro has been translated into numerous languages by the NolaPro community, including Spanish, Chinese, Afrikaans and Vietnamese. In support of this, the author has approved 28 public language translation sites to accept contributions.
