365Mapper is Changing
This autumn, we’ll be kick-starting a new era of development and innovation for 365Mapper, and your involvement is key.
Currently, 365Mapper is a paid product available from the Identity Experts store. As 2019 progresses, we’ll be changing this, gifting the product and its source code to the developer community at large by releasing it under GPL v3 licensing.
From 5th October 2019, the 365Mapper open source code will be released onto GitHub (via our Identity Experts presence) and be made freely available for the community’s imaginative and innovative ideas.
To prepare, we’re pleased to announce a new version of 365Mapper, designed to bridge the transition to this new model. v22.214.171.124 includes all the latest enhancements and fixes, whilst also expanding the product’s management capabilities, and decoupling any legacy dependencies to better support the open source release.
We understand that this is a big change, so we’ll be providing a winding down window of 30 daysfor upgrading any legacy versions to v126.96.36.199. Don’t worry, though: your 365Mapper service will continue to support legacy versions until 5th October 2019. After this time, you’ll need to run the latest version to avoid service disruptions, and to support future upgrade paths.
If you require any help migrating over to the new version our support team will be happy to provide advice and assistance, however moving forward, support for the new version will be provided by the community via GitHub.
We’d like to take this opportunity to thank you all for using 365Mapper, and look forward to seeing where this exciting new development takes the product!
