Linux agent, Management of Secondary Repositories, New Upgrades and F.A.Q’s!
As with many organizations, we took advantage of the calm summer to refocus ourselves on our new projects and recharge our batteries. Now that the September rush has passed, the blog is back in action! I know what you might be thinking after this introduction :
” WAPT 1.7 has been available since February and yet, still no news of the next version! Oh the heartache, oh the despair ! “
While that’s true… we are still not in the position to announce the release date of our next wapt baby (which looks very promising). Although, we have to admit that we think we put together version 1.7 very nicely, and that it should take care of you for the time being. Nevertheless, Tranquil IT decided to put together a Webinar to compensate for this longing expectation that drives you to WAPT (am I over doing it?) During this webinar, we were honest about everything : our exclusive presentation of new features, demonstrations, and we tried to answer to all your questions. We promise we didn’t hold anything back!
Don’t worry; now you have two options : You can replay (subtitles avail. in English) the webinar on our YouTube channel, or you can read this great article; either way, brace yourselves as you’re about to read the best review of the webinar, and most likely the only one!
- The beginning of the webinar was dedicated to the presentation of WAPT Self Service, and our software store for our end users.
- We continued the webinar with the announcement (drum roll) of the creation of a WAPT Agent for Linux.
- The heart of the webinar was saved for the biggest announcement for WAPT : the management of secondary repositories on the WAPT console
- We wrapped it up with a Q&A between our users and Simon to go over everything you might be wondering
