Dear friends -
In the past, the WebUI team has often waited to deliver defect fix content until a major release within the WebUI was ready to go out. Because our major WebUI releases often incorporate a bunch of new functionality, the wait time for defect fixes was sometimes quite long.
Beginning 31 August 2018, we’ll have more frequent deliveries to enable quick access to defect fixes. New releases will be pre-announced here on the forums a few days or a week before the release date. We’ll post another announcement here after confirmation that the update has gone to all our customers.
Folks that would like to introduce change in their environments at a more controlled pace can use our delayed updates feature. For more information about that click here: https://www.ibm.com/support/knowledgecenter/en/SSTK87_9.5.0/com.ibm.bigfix.webui.doc/WebUI/Admin_Guide/c_manage_application_updates.html
For the first of these accelerated releases, the WebUI will be delivering the following changes:
- A compatibility fix for versions 9.5.10 of the platform and above to run properly with the WebUI
- A node version bump from 6.14.3 to 6.14.4 to address the August 2018 node security bulletin: https://nodejs.org/en/blog/vulnerability/august-2018-security-releases/
- A fix allowing customers entitled to Security and Compliance to also get access to WebUI Patch and WebUI Patch policies
Thanks a lot!
