CopiaFacts Version 8.1
CopiaFacts version 8.1 is now available to customers whose maintenance is current (if not, please contact Copia Sales). With this version we have made two administrative changes in addition to the ongoing software enhancements and new features:
First, we are now using a standard four element version/build number (at the time of writing, this is 18.104.22.168). All CopiaFacts components in a build will now have the same version details: we no longer have to maintain version lists showing separate numbers for each item, and you no longer have a struggle to work out what version you are using of each component.
Second, we have moved the 'change history' into Appendix M of the CopiaFacts on-line manual, and will no longer be updating the FFCHANGES database. The old Appendix M listing separate version numbers is now redundant. This change allows us to continue with the searchable change history, but in addition each entry can have links into the manual topics which describe the changes in more detail.
We hope that you will find the new version information easier to use. In upcoming blog posts, we will highlight some of the new features in CopiaFacts 8.1, which are summarized in the new Appendix M of the Reference Manual.
