Browsium Ion 3.2 now available – supports Windows 8

Posted by: Browsium Tags: , , Posted date:


The customer response to Browsium Ion 3 continues to be amazing. We’re thrilled to be helping so many enterprises with their Windows migration and Java management projects. As we communicated in December, we made significant investments to make Ion 3 great, and those investments are paying off. Customers continue to find Ion 3 more compatible, more robust, and much easier to configure.

But there was one key feature missing from Ion 3 when we first released it, and that was support for Windows 8. We’re excited to deliver a new release today, Ion 3.2. It includes support for Windows 8 (technically 8.1, but 8 is okay too) and many more improvements. Read on for details about what’s new in Ion 3.2, and how to get it.

What’s New in Ion 3.2

Ion 3.2 has some visible changes, and some great improvements in the plumbing. Here is a brief list:

  • Support for Windows 8.1 and Windows Server 2012 R2 with IE11, along with IE11 on Windows 7
  • Added support for Custom Files, Custom registries, as well as Java management for Windows Server 2003
  • Ion Controller and Ion Monitor processes only run when a valid Ion configuration is present
  • IE cache is cleared only when Ion configuration changes, not every time Controller starts
  • Ion Client and Ion Configuration Manager setup now look crisp on high-DPI displays

Complete details of “what’s new” in Ion 3.2 can be found in the Release Notes. We highly recommend reading them before installing.
