Release Notes for Manager+Agents

What's New in Manager+Agents 14.0

Updated July 27, 2019

Manager+Agents 14.0 includes an update to system requirements including support for Windows Server 2019.

This release includes enhancements to Manager job scaling and reliability previously available as opt-in options as the default configuration. This includes overall capacity improvements for creating jobs using the REST API.

Note: Version 14.0 of Manager+Agents uses storage profiles to work with object storage. If using the Web Transfer API to transfer to S3 compatible storage, you may need to reconfigure your application to work with storage profiles. If you are unsure if this applies to your deployment, do not upgrade.

For more information, see Configuring Agents.
