Release notes

Every four weeks you will find improvements, enhancements and new features in ysura. Larger enhancements are available for testing for a certain period prior to the official release. In general, however, the enhancements are self-explanatory and intuitive. These release notes list the highlights of each release. In addition to these highlights, there are frequent smaller improvements related to design, speed and security.

AB 2019: Change release cycle

With the new year ysura will change the release process. In future, releases will be made to the customer every 2 months (previously every 4 weeks). The release process can take several hours. A longer release should not jeopardize productivity during regular customer business hours. The day is therefore changed from the last Tuesday of each month to Friday.


The change will also change the schema of the version numbers. The previous version: MAJOR.MINOR.FIX (e.g. 3.12.26) will be replaced by YEAR.RELEASE.FIX (2019.1.0). The new schema transports more information and makes it clear faster by means of the version number when a release will be available for customers. The release notes will be published approx. 4 weeks before go live on the ysura homepage.
