Full distribution of 8.002 is scheduled for September 30th. After 8.002 is made available, 7.508 will then be issued. Soft-release will be on September 30th, with Up2Date generally available on approximately October 7th. This release, (amongst other things), will add the one-touch upgrade to V8 for all ASG V7 Hardware Appliance installations. More information will follow as the Up2Date packages are made available.
*Our soft-release process sees Up2Dates posted on our FTP for manual installation, followed by the GA “push” via our Up2Date infrastructure approximately 1-2 weeks later. The UBB at www.astaro.org is where soft-release announcements are made).
