      • Key improvements to Portfolio Management, including the removal of the limit on the number of investments in a portfolio

    Is this actually available? Or is there another reason for it not appearing in my "Select a Release" list? I only see 13.2, 13.3 and 14.1

    There doesn't appear to be much information available yet on the product page as the release message indicates...given that this is a significant upgrade, I would hope there is more information available and easy to locate...

    Hi Andrew:  I updated all the core product codes this morning.  It's available on one of four servers so far.  I apologize I didn't realize the replication time varied from server to server.  If your server doesn't show release 14.2, it's a matter of timing.  Again, I am so sorry I didn't unexpired codes last night.  Katherine

    Great to know, thanks for the update.

     

    We'd like to install it on one of our demo systems as soon as possible, however I couldn't find any Documentation in either the ISO-file, nor the Documentation Center.

    Where can we get the standard Documentations for 14.2, e.g. the Bookshelf-PDF-files?

    I'm interested in the jaspersoft implementation however all the documents seem to be locked off at the moment

    Hi Andy, thank you for being proactive and providing the link to the bookshelf! The site you mention for Jaspersoft - I suggest you check back soon (tomorrow) to see if it's available and not locked down anymore.

     

    I'm really glad to hear you say that the reference guides have improved. You're very welcome! We have been working very hard at this.

     

    Have a great weekend
