Many of the most common questions about new releases revolve around the platform matrix. What operating systems will be supported? Will it support the latest browsers? When will the older versions of the database be dropped from the matrix? These questions are important because you need time to plan for any changes that are happening - either with your own environment or due to changing support within the product. To help with any such decisions, I'd like to share our current thoughts about what is changing in the next major release of Version Manager. The next major release is tentatively planned for release summer 2016.
It’s hard to believe that it is has been nearly a year since the release of Dimensions CM 14.1, the most significant release of Dimensions CM in a decade. Over the last year we’ve been amazed by both it's rapid adoption and the rave reviews that it has achieved. However, we've not used this as an excuse to stand still with the Dimensions R&D team continuing the pace of innovation in the Serena Labs, and in July this year we will be releasing the first major update to the CM 14 platform - Dimensions CM 14.2.
Over the next few weeks I’m going to be penning a number of blogs introducing you to the new features that are coming next month. This is the first in that series, and I’m going to use it to introduce you to the platform changes in Dimensions CM 14.2 through the sections below (the full platform matrix is available on the Serena Support Site).
