FrameFlow Newsletter – August 2014

Current Release: 7.0.5

Back in version 6.x there was an option to see graph data in tabular format but in the v7.0 redesign this feature was missed. Version 7.0.5, which was released in mid August, corrects this and it also includes a number of fixes for various reported issues. In particular we found and fixed a number of user interface issues that could occur when running the FrameFlow interface on IIS. If you’re running an earlier version, we encourage you to keep up to date by upgrading to v7.0.5.

Industry News

Microsoft’s Patch Tuesday fell on the 12th of the month. It includes nine fixes with two of them listed as critical. The first of the critical ones is a cumulative update for Internet Explorer. The second was related to a malicious file that invokes Windows Media Center resources.

But you might want to hold off before deploying the August updates. There are widespread reports of severe problems after applying them. For a good review of these, see this article by Larry Seltzer at ZDNet:

In mid August Red Hat announced the availability of a beta for RHEL 6.6. Although there are lots of distros out there these days, Red Hat is a perennial favorite for the business world. The beta includes increased performance, improved system administration and many networking improvements.

Just yesterday, Dropbox announced changes to its paid plans. Now you can get 1TB for just $10/month. All of us here at FrameFlow work in a distributed, cross-platform environment and we got onboard with Dropbox while it was in beta. It’s still our preferred file synchronization solution, but we have to admit that other options like Google Drive, Microsoft OneDrive and are all looking pretty good too.
