Release Notes

This is the first public Beta of the new version of the MDT Web FrontEnd.

THIS IS BETA Software! And is provided "AS IS" without express or implied warranty of any kind.

New beta versions will be published in short cycles of 1-2 weeks, so please come back regularly and/or subscribe to the Release notifications.

It's not production ready (yet), it's not complete (yet), but it is working :-). If you want to give it a try, what I really would appreciate, please test it as a separate web page on a separate database.

Installation/Upgrade instructions:
  • The easiest way to upgrade from an existing version to a new version is to download the newest release (don't forget to unblock the file!), extract it to a temporary folder. Delete all files from the current web folder. Copy all the files from the temporary folder to the web folder. That's it. Then open the homepage and configure the Database access and you are good to go.
  • If you upgrade from 2.0.1 be sure to also replace the web.config. There has been some breaking changes in this file that need to be available. As soon as you open the frontend the first time, it should redirect you to the MDT Databas configuration page, so that you can configure the database connection settings again.
