Why is WebTRIM releasing this Update?

WebTRIM releases major software updates every 2-3 months. Updates include new features, application updates, security patches and bug fixes. The Update is developed and tested as a single release, including all minor releases since the last major release. WebTRIM will upgrade customers software periodically at no charge to ensure your Mission Critical software is always operating at its best. This happens seamlessly and will typically not impact on your daily use and operation of your WebTRIM system at all.

New security issues are discovered regularly and new features and enhancements are created to increase the value you receive from WebTRIM. All software requires regular updates to keep it functioning at optimal effectiveness. Even if you do not change your hardware, software or how you use it, changes in other parts of your IT environment can have an impact. Software Updates are required for a few major reasons:

Security Vulnerabilities First and foremost, updates keep you safe from known security holes. This is especially important when there is a new release available for software you use because most change logs and update notes reveal previously-known exploits that have already been patched. Public knowledge of these exploits leaves your application easy prey for malicious users who are out to exploit these now known issues. Not securing these by updating leaves your system open to compromise making your software vulnerable.

New Features and Improved Functionality Updating your WebTRIM software will provide new feature and speed enhancements. As the WebTRIM software development team write enhancements and create new features

Fixing Software Bugs Over time based on WebTRIM’s extended testing and customer feedback, software bugs are identified. Updates are made to resolve any major or minor issues periodically.

Customer Support WebTRIM’s support & development team focus’ on the latest release of WebTRIM. New features, enhancements and bug fixes are released first on the latest production version, older versions will only receive critical fixes, in some case they are dependent on database changes and it may not be possible to be retrofitted to older versions. Where a resolution is available in a later release, the recommended action is to upgrade to the latest production release.
