Browsium Ion 3.6 now available with support for Windows 10

Posted by: Browsium Tags: , , Posted date:


Today we released an update to Browsium Ion which adds support for Windows 10, further enhances Java version management, and includes a number of customer-requested improvements. Windows 10 momentum in the consumer market is unprecedented, and enterprises are already beginning to plan their migration strategies. As we announced last week, our partner HP has integrated Ion as a core component of its WebApp Accelerator Service for Internet Explorer 11, part of their Enterprise Services for Windows 10. That’s why we prioritized Windows 10 support in this release. It’s important to note that “Windows 10 support” means Ion 3.6 works with IE11, not with the new Edge browser, which has no legacy support or extension model at this time. However, we will be looking for opportunities to help Edge become a great enterprise browser in the future, so stay tuned.

The specific changes in Ion 3.6 include:

  • Support for IE11 on Windows 10.
  • Custom configurations in Java Version Manager to override of the default permission value and remediate multiple versions of Java in one Ion profile.
  • Enhanced error handling in Java Version Manager which now detects the presence of the 64-bit Java Development Kit (JDK) and instructs the administrator to install the required 32-bit version.
  • Improved rule evaluation to process 302 redirects from a web server and handle very long URLs.
  • Improved user agent strings in certain profiles to correctly set the Trident value.

There are more details on product changes and guidance to help you install and use Ion 3.6 in the Release Notes. We highly recommend reading them before installing.
