Connect for Windows 3.6.1 Release Notes

Connect for Windows 3.6.1 Release Notes

Connect for Windows 3.6.1 is a significant release that has improved and stabilised the core filtering components, the upgrade and installation process with some exciting new features.

An important change is the upgrade and release process of our agents. Prior releases were made available to all customers in all regions. For customers in our School Manager platform, you have been assigned to release branches in your region. For example, Australian customers will be assigned to either General Availability - AU, Early Access - AU or Beta - AU. We will be progressively rolling out this release through each region and the branches. Customers in Beta branches will be first, followed by Early Access and finally, all customers on the General Availability release branch.

If you’re not a School Manager user, you have been assigned to the General Availability release branch.

The release schedule is:

Release 1: Wednesday 13th July

  • Beta AU
  • Beta NZ
  • Beta UK (Early beta branch)

Release  2: Wednesday 20th July
