We are pleased to announce the release of version 1.4 of Web3. This release is a bug-fix update and is recommended for all users of Web3. For a link to the upgrade package please contact us at support@networkedplanet.com.

Upgrade Instructions

To upgrade from Web3 1.3, unzip the installation package and run the installer application in Web3/setup.exe. During installation you will be prompted for database and service configuration information as you were during the initial installation. After installing Web3, you should also upgrade the Web3Admin package on any client machines that use the Powershell administration snap-in. Full installation and upgrade information can be found in the installation package.

To upgrade from previous versions of Web3, follow the upgrade instructions above and then open the Web3 site in your browser. Each topic map on the Web3 site must be resynchronized with its schema (if it has one). To do this, click on the topic map name in the topic map list and then on the topic map page click on the Jobs button. On the topic map jobs page, click on the Synchronize Schema button to start the synchronization process. It is also possible to perform this synchronization operation using the Web3 Admin powershell snap-in. Further details on the upgrade process can be found in the README file contained in the installation ZIP package.
