2023-W50 release - December 16, 2023


General Release Notice

HEADS UP! No W52 release

Auvik usually releases upgrades every two weeks. But we understand the holidays are a time of reflection and relaxation—and for many, a freeze on changes made to networks. 

To minimize changes, we’ll be skipping the deployment of new features in what would be our week 52 release at the end of December. 

Our next release with new features and bug fixes will be in the second week of January 2024.

Reminder - Auvik collectors running on deprecated versions of Windows are not supported.

Upcoming improvements to the collector may not be compatible with running on a deprecated Windows OS.

All desktop versions of Windows 10 other than 22H2 and below (Windows 10 21H2, 8.1, 8, 7, XP, etc.) and all versions of Windows Server 2012r2 and below (2012, 2008r2, 2008, etc) have reached their Microsoft Extended Support Expiry date. They are no longer actively supported by Microsoft. All Auvik Windows collectors (both installed or command line version) should installed on an actively supported version of Windows. Issues occurring with collectors installed on an unsupported version of Windows are no longer maintained. The recommendation is to install the collector software on a supported version of Windows or install a collector using one of the other collector versions Auvik offers.

Please migrate any collectors you have installed on a non-supported OS to a supported OS as soon as possible. Upcoming improvements to the collector will not work on unsupported Operating Systems.

For more information, please refer to OS End of Service and the Auvik Collector
