Changes to Maintained Versions (November, 2015)
Important change to AXIS Maintained Versions, starting in November 2015 with version 20159904
As of November 2015, we have made a change to the Maintained Versions of AXIS. This change will apply to the 2015 Maintained stream and future Maintained streams (2016, 2017 etc.).
Traditionally in any given Maintained stream, a dataset could be shared between any AXIS version belonging to that stream. For example AXIS version 20159903 could read a dataset with AXIS version 20159901 and vice versa. Beginning with the 20159904 Maintained version to be released in November 2015, datasets opened by a maintained version will no longer be readable by earlier versions.
This change will benefit our clients for the following reasons:
- Restricting earlier versions with known bugs from opening the dataset prevents them from potentially updating a dataset with incorrect results.
- The change permits a larger range of bug fixes to be incorporated into Maintained versions, thereby increasing their quality.
We recommend that clients always move to the latest version of a Maintained stream so that they can rest assured that all known bugs have been fixed.
