Announcing monthly Patch Tuesdays

posted on August 13

Laserfiche will be updating the latest versions of software packages on the second Tuesday of every month going forward. Patches will still be released as necessary and published with their own knowledge base article. Once a month the most recent patches will be collected and the complete download package will be updated. Using the latest package for new installs will ensure that updates are automatically applied as part of the product installation.

Once a new version is released, packages for the previous version will be updated for 3 months. After that, the older version will only be updated if security issues are discovered. Patches for older versions will still be released as needed. ISO images (for any version) will not be updated after the initial release.

The following packages were updated today:

Laserfiche 10.4.1 (includes Directory Server KB1014055 and Forms KB1014059)
Quick Fields 10.3 (KB1013952)
Import Agent 10.3.1 (KB1013967, KB1014007)
WebLink 10.1 (KB1013994)
Connector 10.3 (KB1013958, KB1014068)

The next round of updates to packages will be on Sept 10.

Hi there - the second Tuesday of October has passed and I don’t see any patch updates? Why announce a monthly patch but not post anything (now two months in a row?) Just wondering - expectations were set - so just trying to understand when would we actually see patches come out. Thanks so much!

The initial post was announcing the new cadence for updating the download packages for our software. The goal is to have a schedule so our resellers and IT people don't have to download the whole package every time they need to install something just to get the newest patches automatically updated.

The last update time is indicated on each package's individual page.

I was not planning on posting here every month. But we will look into making a more formal announcement every month.

Miruna, my reply was to inform Denny that fixes were released. I would not personally expect an announcement each time. Not sure if that is what Denny is expecting or not though.

Thanks. I think clearly communicating the expectations/purpose is helpful for us all. Appreciate it.

So if I read this correctly, we will be waiting until next month to see any fixes to current issues?

Sounds like it. Greatly disappointed here. Thought we'd get some quick fixes with Web Access Client in this week.

The monthly update collects patches released during the month so the installer can automatically apply them. It does not necessarily releases new patches.

What fixes are you looking for?

Miruna,

I submitted two issues with the web client that were confirmed bugs that we are waiting on fixes for so we can apply them to a clients system.

It looks like that patch did not make the deadline for this month. It will be released on its own when it's ready and rolled into the next package update after that.

Hi Blake, 

 

Are you referring to confirmed bugs BugID 190848 (from Case 204085)  and BugId 190739 (from Case 204084)?

 

If so, the fixes for both issues are targeted for Laserfiche 10.4.2 release, due out early to mid Q4. If these are not the issues you're referring to, let me know the bug id or case id and I can follow up on them.

Hi there. Can you confirm no update again this month? That makes 3 months without a patch update... Thanks. Denny

There were no patches released since the October 8 update of the 10.4.1 package, so there was no roll-up update for November.

I'd just like to add that while bugs are frustrating, I would certainly prefer Laserfiche maintain less frequent and fully tested, stable releases over more frequent, less tested, patches.
