X1 Search 8.5 Release - Build 6001qm

Postby Michael Devin » Wed Jan 25, 2017 5:23 pm

Hi all,

After a lot of work, some time, and most importantly your feedback, we are excited to announce the GA release of X1 Search 8.5!

The download information and release notes are below, including a list of the frequently requested hotkey commands.

I would first like to take a moment to thank the entire forum community for your dedicated feedback throughout the beta, as well as your patience towards our occasionally delayed response times. Our development team, and X1 as an organization, spent a great deal of time in 2016 developing X1 Distributed Discovery, which you can read more about here: http://www.x1.com/products/x1_distributed_discovery/.

As we do not have a massive team, the project without question impacted not only our ability to directly advance X1 Search at the pace we are accustomed, but also hindered our ability to support our forums at the standard we aspire to.

X1 Distributed Discovery revolutionizes how organizations search, identify and collect documents at the desktop level across numerous endpoints with industry-leading speed, empowering legal and IT teams to generate and actually adjust keyterms in real-time, before collection. Most importantly to this forum, the release of Distributed Discovery is built around X1 Search as the foundational piece.

Thus, a significant amount of the improvements made to the desktop on behalf of the Distributed Discovery effort have already and will continue to find their way into X1 Search. This includes a lot of the speed and stability improvements that you will see in X1 Search 8.5. Some additional functionality, including the potential for enhanced Google data connectors, will roll out throughout 2017.

We are extremely excited about X1 Distributed Discovery, as well as eager to continue improving the core X1 Search product you rely upon every day. Also, we made some organizational changes to ensure more active participation in these forums, in order to capitalize on your dedicated support and forum contributions.

Thanks again for your continued support, and please keep the feedback coming! Now, on to X1 Search 8.5…

You can upgrade via Menu>Help>Check for Updates, or you can download with the below links. 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.
