Release Notes

New Features (available on the X1 eDiscovery Client)
The X1 eDiscovery Client is a new version of the X1 Professional Client designed for the electronic legal services market. If you are interested in a trial of the X1 eDiscovery Client contact sales at sales@x1.com.

Tagging
- Added feature that allows users to define a list of tags.
- Tags are limited to the letters a-z, A-Z and digits 0-9 with no spaces.
- Added feature that allows administrator to define a list of tags via a group policy object.
- Added feature that allows administrator to lock down the list of tags via a group policy object.
- Added "Tag" post search action that allows user to tag a search result in the X1 Client index.
- Added tag dialog which allows users to add/remove tags to single/multiple items in the X1 Client index.
- Added support to tag items in the X1 Server index.
- Added the "Document Tags" column which displays Tags added to items.
Annotation
- Added feature that allows users to annotate (add a note) to a search result(s) in the X1 Client index.
- Annotations can be up to 4096 characters in length.
- The "Annotate" post search action supports a single annotation per item in the X1 index.
- The "Annotate" post search action does not support adding notes to X1 Server index items.
- Added the "Annotation" column which displays notes added to items.
Search Session Logs
- Added feature that allows user to create a search log for a defined search session.
- The search session starts when the user clicks on the "Start Session" button in the main search bar.
- The user must define a session or select an existing session to log searches against.
- Search session logs are stored in the X1 Search Sessions folder under the X1 data directory.
- The search session ends when the user clicks on the "Stop Session" button in the main search bar.
Use of Tagging and Annotations in X1 Client local index
- Tags and Annotations for the desktop client index are designed for static content email and file repositories.
- Email and files updated, edited, moved or deleted between incremental indexing will lose tags and annotations.
- Given some email clients and backup programs update email/files automatically it is advised that incremental scanning is turned off to preserve tags/annotations.
- To export tags and annotations, display the "Document Tags" and "Annotation" column. Filter by non-empty columns ("-") and export results to Excel or CSV.
- For the processing of large document collections and de-duplication features, X1 recommends the implementation of the X1 Server.

X1 Supported Platforms Guide
X1 Technologies goes out of its way to explicitly test our products with a number of third-party products. Our goal is to test and validate that our products work with those products our customers and partners use most frequently. Just because a particular version of the third-party software is not listed on the supported platforms guide does not mean that the product will not work with X1, just that we do not explicitly test that version of the application.

-Adding/removing plugins.
• For these actions, an authentication dialog will prompt for a username and password with administrator privileges.

To disable Windows Search on Vista follow these steps:
1. Control Panel > Administrative Tools > Services.
2. Find the "Windows Search" service.
3. Right-click on the "Windows Search" service and select Properties from the menu.
4. On the Properties > General tab, click the "Stop" button to halt the service, and select "Disabled" from the Startup type pulldown.
5. Click OK to apply the new settings and close the Properties dialog.

Installed OK, albeit it stomping all over my toolbars, as usual. (I suppose it is too much to expect X1 to remember and reinstate the configuration of my toolbars.)

X1 still does not minimise to the Notification area on start up.

I'm running Windows 7 beta and at first blush v6.6 works better with it than v6.2.4 - but that's only a few minutes of testing. Out of respect to X1, let me point out that there's no claim or responsibility on their part for X1 to work at all with this OS.

Still....with v6.2.4, the option to set the aggressiveness for indexing (that place where you can designate no delay or delays of 15, 30, etc., minutes if the computer is in use) was all grayed out. IOW, this feature was not working under Win 7 beta.

Now with v6.6 this feature set is now available again (not grayed out) and I can set indexing aggressiveness to whatever I want now.

I know X1 isn't slated to work on Win 7 beta, but still, it's nice to see the future for X1 is lookin' good!

Installed 6.6 and it seems somewhat more responsive that the beta. After installation though, it did not find all the emails, that the beta found prior to installation. It didi actually do some indexing right after installation and reported 100% after that. I wish there was a good way in whihc one could see which files or mails had been indexed, which were on the "list" etc., so one could get a grip of when this process runs astray. I guess I have to reidex my emails - again - sigh!

Couple of questions:
Is this a beta release?
Will I need to purchase a new license?

My last license says "perpetual"

Thanks,

Not a beta, no, but mostly for the new eDiscovery features not in the regular versions. I suspect the dot net requirement is also the reason its not being pushed as the latest and greatest on the x1 homepage.

I have no actual idea though, just guessing!

If you don't have a recent (16) digit reg code, you won't be able to install this version fully, just in 30 day trial mode. The same is true for 6.2.4, see other discussions on this topic in the forums here.

Cheers,

Tim

To clarify, this means that you have a perpetual licence to use the version you bought. It isn't a guarantee that you get free upgrades in perpetuity.

But you have worked that out already.

Try this message

Where you will read:

You can download the X1 Professional Client Blackbird Release Candidate II by using this link: http://www.x1.com/cs/x1_pro_client_dotNet_3914.exe
Note: The RC III will function until October 31, 2009 at which time we will post a new build or the product will be released as GA. On launch of X1, you will automatically be notified when a new version has been released.

Note that this beta expires on 31 October.

If you are evaluating X1, then you might do better to use the current production version.

Clarification

Postby tltabor » Mon Sep 21, 2009 10:31 pm

Sorry, I guess I was unclear. I read in this thread that 6.6 is "not a beta, no". I've used it at the office, and repaved my machine, so I would like to reinstall it. It appears that the non-beta 6.6 has gone away in favor of the blackbird beta?

I see from X1 that I filed my first bug report on 9/28/2003, first purchased the product on 10/1/2003, joined the forum on 12/5/2003, and joined the beta program on 12/17/2003. I have indexed as much as 1.2 mil objects on a single workstation, but am trying a more manageable number now.

Very nice product, very nice people.

Thank you.

You probably knew this anyway, but X1 changed the licence rules not long ago when it also implemented longer licence keys.

If you don't want to pay $50 for the latest versions, then you should retrieve an earlier versions of X1.

To do that you need to log intothe support area. There you can lay your hands on previous setup files.

Still Looking

Postby tltabor » Fri Sep 25, 2009 7:55 pm

I'm still looking for a link to the "non-beta" version 6.6. It has functionality I need and I don't want to go beta blackbird. Help please.

Thank you.

You originally said that you wanted to "evault functionalty". Then you said you had an old licence. Now you ask for "a link to the "non-beta" version 6.6".

There is no non-beta version 6.6. The current commercial release is the 6.2.4 Client.

If you want to get that you have two options.

If you have a current licence, then, as I explained in my previous message, log in and download the thing from the support area.

Or download the trial version and enter your licence key.

If you do not have a licence then download the trial version and be prepared for it to expire.

This is the official word:

Beginning with the release of version 6.2.4, X1 will only accept registration codes that are 16 characters in length. If you have an older 13 character registration code you will not be able to unlock v6.2.4 or later releases. Continuing to install the product without a valid 16 digit code will cause X1 to install as a 14 day trial.

In your case, you probably do not have an up to date licence, so you have to decide whether to buy a new one, or you have to log into the support area to retrieve the latest version that works with your licence key. The archive goes back to the 5.6.4 Client.

But you have worked that out already.

So if you buy the one year support it's a good idea to get the latest version just before your support runs out, as X1 seems totally unable to check for a new version at startup even if you do check the box. It may just be that it is trying to check before my network is fully operational, but as a user I should not need to worry about that.

This is generally a good strategy.

The update checker has been pretty well useless until recently. The new run of beta tests has mended problems on that front.
