Open-AudIT 4.0.0 is here. For more information about why we have gone to 4.0.0, please see my blog post Open-AudIT 4.0.0.
WARNING – See blog post above about migrating as you cannot upgrade to Open-AudIT 4.0.0 (hint, it’s easy).
A new license will be required if you have a perpetual license. Subscription licenses are unaffected (but may need to be manually copied, see blog post). Contact Opmantek if you require a new license.
Please note (as detailed in the blog post):
- NMIS9 Syncing has not been implemented for this release.
- This release is not compatible with older versions of Opmantek products, that were designed for NMIS8.
Open-AudIT Community will (for now) remain at version 3.5.1.
Open-AudIT Professional and Enterprise build on top of Community, so their major version has been increased, as explained in the blog post. So if you install version 4.0.0 and switch to the Community GUI you will see version 3.5.1 there. DON’T PANIC, this is intentional
