IMPORTANT – Customers using EditShare Storage and Flow with Geevs servers:
- EditShare Storage 18.104.22.168/Flow 22.214.171.124/Ark 126.96.36.199 requires your Geevs server(s) to be running Geevs version 188.8.131.52. This is the version of Geevs that was released to be compatible with the previous EditShare updates (184.108.40.206/220.127.116.11) so you may already be running this Geevs version at your facility.
- If you are updating Storage, Flow and Ark from versions earlier than 18.104.22.168/22.214.171.124 (for example, from 6.1.3.x/2.1.3.x), you may currently be running a Geevs version that is incompatible with this new update.
- Please be sure to update all your Geevs servers to 126.96.36.199 if they are not already running that version. You cannot update some servers now and other servers later. All your servers must be running compatible versions.
NOTE ON DAVE:
Please visit the updated DAVE compatibility page for new information on the latest EditShare approved DAVE builds, 9.0.2-1450 and 10.0.1. All EditShare customers running OSX 10.8 Mountain Lion must be running DAVE 10.0 or DAVE 10.0.1 (DAVE 9.0.2-1450 is incompatible with Mountain Lion). EditShare customers running Mac OS X 10.7 Lion can run either DAVE 9.0.2-1450 or DAVE 10.0.1. The original DAVE 10.0 release is not 100 percent compatible with Mac OS X Lion or Mac OS X Snow Leopard, so Lion & Snow Leopard users who wish to run DAVE 10 should only use version 10.0.1.
