Originally published at: http://xibo.org.uk/2017/02/28/1-8-0-rc3-released/

We are proud to announce the release of our third release candidate for the 1.8 series of Xibo. The codename for this series is “Tempel”.

This release builds on the enhancements in 1.8.0-rc2 by fixing 61 issues/features. We are nearing our first stable 1.8 release and would appreciate anyone willing to try out 1.8.0-rc3.

Recommended Configuration

Our recommended configuration for 1.8 series on ward will be based on Docker and from 1.8.0-rc3 the focus of the documentation has changed to reflect this. If you would like to try 1.8.0-rc3 by upgrading your existing 1.7 installation, we recommend switching to Docker. Please refer to the release notes for more information.

Signage Players

This series contains new features relating to the communication between the CMS and the Players. To use this release you must use Xibo for Windows 1.8.0-rc3 or later or Xibo for Android R58 or later. The release notes are available in the manual and the download is available on GitHub.

Please Note: This is a release candidate and should not be used in production.
