What about NComputing’s support for older VERDE server versions?

In an effort to continue to innovate and bring out the best possible features and experience to our customers, we recommend that migration plans to the latest release of VERDE 8.2 be put into place for earlier versions of VERDE and that these plans be implemented within six months of the release of any new version of VERDE-VDI.

Can I upgrade to VERDE 8.2 from earlier versions of VERDE?

Wed, 03/21/2018 - 15:25 -- Phil Mason

Any customer can upgrade a previous VERDE 8.2 release to the latest 8.2.x version.  

For VERDE 8.1 and earlier, due to changes in the VERDE licensing software it is not possible to upgrade from these releases to VERDE 8.x. Once VERDE 8.2.x is installed however it is possible to upgrade any backed up and saved gold images and user images files.  Check with VERDE support for instructions on which files need to be saved, the upgrade steps, and the restoration process.  NComputing professional services can assist you with these upgrade steps.

I am using an earlier version of VERDE now, should I move to VERDE 8.2 (latest release)?

Wed, 03/21/2018 - 15:24 -- Phil Mason

Yes. We continue to release new versions of VERDE 8.2. Each version comes with many new enhancements that are beneficial to customers and bug fixes found in earlier versions of VERDE have been included in VERDE 8.2.x.   Please refer to the latest VERDE 8.2 release notes for a list of the most significant fixes and remaining known issues.

Upgrading to the latest version of VERDE 8.2 now will ensure that any future point releases will always be the best supported version going forward
