X1 Search 8.4 released! (Build 5003ow)

Postby Michael Devin » Tue Oct 27, 2015 1:52 pm

Many thanks to our beta community as we are proud to announce the release of X1 Search version 8.4 (Build 5003ow)!

NOTE: Please upgrade to the GA version as soon as possible as the current beta build expires 11/15/2015.

This version includes the addition of our brand new OneDrive connector, compatible with OneDrive, OneDrive for Business (O365), and OneDrive for Business (SharePoint 2013). Also, we are excited to re-introduce an improved version of our saved search portability – allowing you to email colleagues and co-workers useful saved searches.

Last, as referenced in the beta release posts, version 8.4 includes our new and vastly improved bootstrapper along with full MSI download availability. As with the beta, there are a few links available below depending on what you prefer to install.

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.
Version 8.4 also includes a number of new features for Enterprise deployment, UI improvements, and various bug fixes. Also, we fixed the known issues referenced in the beta post here: http://forums.x1.com/viewtopic.php?f=58&t=9818.
