New free version ...

Hello everyone, 

did someone know when the free release will be update ?

The 12sp9 was released in august 2020, the declared plan of aras was releasing one new free version every year.

Probably they change their mind ... 

  • Thanks Yanfeng for the news! This version was definitely not there yesterday. 

    But this release leaves more questions than answers. What is "Release 2023"? Thanks Riaan for doing the release notes cross check. It also looks like v23 for me. This was a extremely wise choice from Aras. Kudos, well done!Thumbsup

    Most important reason: It contains the patch foF-005730 (Fixed several similar bugs that were related to changing an item's lock status with an old generation open.). Funny, cause I often said v23 is the only one of the new versions I would use. Without this patch I would probably have burned down Andover because I wouldn´t have seen any other way to express my hurt feelings.Smile Thanks Aras for paying attention to this detail - intentionally or unintentionally.

    Release 2023 doesn´t contain "Copy Grid Cell to Clipboard" patch from Release 24. But: This is not a uncommon customization, so this very useful feature should be more or less easy to rebuild. Bug fixes from Release 25 are more relevant for very large implementations, so nothing I would miss right now. So Aras really made a excellent choice by not providing the latest version, but the latest version that makes sense to average community. 

    Not sure if the whole version was rushed after this discussion started up again. All documents have the date 19th December. But I expect more marketing promotion in spring. Right now many people prepare for holiday season, not for update.

    Big question: What about application compatibility? Haven´t checked Aras Update tool yet. And note that there is a new license agreement. I don´t expect much changes, but it´s better to be on the save side regarding legal topics.

    I will test it out beginning 2023. Let me hear your test results if any of you made some test already!

  • Short update regarding applications: They haven´t forgotten them!

    This day just get´s better! 

  • Second update: There are no specific languages packs for release 2023. But we high-likely can reuse regular packs. For German v22 should work.

    The link to language packs on the homepage currently doesn´t seem to work. I wasn´t able to select a specific language. But you can access the pages via search machine.

  • this is part of the new release strategy post v14 - apps are all supposed to work for all releases. 

    Unless you are scrapping the Aras apps and building your own - in which case you need a good CICD process to manage the updates with custom reworks.  

  • On my updater I can see the 2023 Release, but it is grayed out. Do you know how I can fix that? Do I need a new license ?

  • Do you use the latest version of the updater?

    I never have seen something grayed out in the updater. But from my experience the updater don´t work in every environment cause of firewall restrictions or similar. Keep an eye on that.

  • Yes. I downloaded the latest version. There is no firewall blocking the program from going out and the other versions are not grayed out.

  • Aras does geoblocking of certain countries due to spam and bots. Maybe try with VPN if possible.

    Maybe the Updater checks the operation system and only suggest you "compatible" versions. I would try another computer too.

    But I have no idea. Maybe someone else knows more.
