It has been 3 months since the Webconverger 23 release which has been a fine stable release. Now it's time to upgrade for Live users for security reasons and a couple of new features mainly driven by Firefox.
- Firefox 28
- MP4 video playing support, so you can use an MP4 video now to attract patrons to your service when idle
- Flash security updates, though do try HTML video instead, so we can deprecate Flash
- Linux kernel 3.12, a longterm stable kernel
- New filter= API which complements our new filter.webconverger.com service for fine grained blacklisting (think OpenDNS, but cheaper)
For install users of 23.0, the upgrade delta is about 178M, when
automatically upgrading. Github does throttle your connection or if
you are on a poor internet connection, upgrading can be quite a long winded
process. Do please check what version you are running by looking at
using the WEBCVERSION homepage expansion. Paid subscribers can quickly check
the version of their machines by clicking the information icon on the control
panel. If in any
doubt, please do download the latest release
and re-image your machines!

Please support our work by purchasing a subscription. We are tentatively offering free trials of our central management tool, so you can see for yourself how easy it is to manage a fleet of machines accessing the Web. Thank you!
