X1 Search 8.4 Beta Release 3 - Build 5003of

Postby Michael Devin » Mon Oct 19, 2015 5:09 pm

Hello Beta Community!

We are happy to announce we just updated the public beta for X1 Search 8.4. The Search 8.4 beta download links and release notes are at the bottom of this post.

In this X1 Search 8.4 beta refresh 3 we finalized our connectors for OneDrive, OneDrive for Business (O365), and OneDrive for SharePoint 2013. We also added the ability to share, save and import custom saved searches.

Last but certainly not least, this public beta release is the first to include our new bootstrapper and the full MSI download availability. The bootstrapper downloads the latest code, and the actual MSI installer for both x32 and x64 operating systems. There are a few links available below depending on what you prefer to install. The new MSI will help users only download the code from X1 one time if they are going to install it on more than one computer. It will also enable Enterprise IT administrators to use their standard MSI deployment tools.

Please make note of the following:

NOTE: This beta build has a hard-coded expiration of 11/15/2015. We plan to release X1 Search 8.4 GA during the week of 10/26/15.

NOTE: There are a few known issues you may encounter when running the beta. We are in the midst of resolving these issues in advance of the upcoming release.

• Touchscreen users: In certain cases the new bootstrapper is not centering on launch
• OneDrive users: A bug with certain special characters in the password for OneDrive

X1SearchSetupBeta.exe (bootstrapper that will determine the correct bitness, download the MSI and walk you through the install process)
