The customer response to Browsium Ion 3 has been phenomenal. All of the investments we made to make Ion 3 great have been paying off. Customers are finding it more compatible, more robust, and much easier to configure. These three combine to make Internet Explorer and Windows 7 migrations a far less painful prospect for large enterprise.

But even with all of that effort, software is software and it’s really never “done”. So we kept working to improve and refine Ion, unblocking even more scenarios and helping it to fit into even more complex enterprise networks. This brings us to our new Ion maintenance release, which we’re calling Ion 3.1.

What’s New in Ion 3.1

Ion 3.1 doesn’t have a lot of visible changes, but it has major improvements to the plumbing. For example:

  • We improved performance of Ion-managed instances of Internet Explorer for Profiles without Custom Registries or Custom Files.
  • We simplified the architecture and implementation of Ion by using newer .NET 3.5 SP1 framework class libraries.
  • We also made it easy to upgrade to Ion 3.1 from Ion 3.0.1 by adding support for in-place upgrades.

Complete details of “what’s new” in Ion 3.1 can be found in the Release Notes. We highly recommend reading them before installing.

Who should upgrade to Ion 3.1? Frankly, everyone deploying or evaluating Ion.  If you’re already an Ion customer, you can download the new version from the download page sent to you with your license key. If you’re just evaluating Ion now, or are interested in evaluating it, you have two options:

  • If you have engaged with us in the past, we simply need you to confirm your email address. Then we’ll automatically direct you to the download page.
  • If we didn’t find your email address, or you’re new to Browsium, you can fill out our Evaluation Kit Request Form. You’ll have the software as soon as you verify your email address.

Be sure to read the FAQs and search the Knowledge Base. If you’d like to talk with our team about pricing or a reseller in your region, please email Browsium Sales. If you’re looking for a version of Ion (or Catalyst for that matter) that will run on Windows 8, hang tight a bit longer. Support for Windows 8.1 and IE11 are coming very soon.
