FacilitatePro v17.5

November 7, 2023 - FacilitatePro v17.5 is now available for immediate download.

A few v17.5 Highlights:

This new version includes security updates (including upgrading to OpenSSL 3.3.1 and advanced logging tools), non-security fixes, and feature enhancements. Please contact us for a complete list of new features and to assist you with downloading and upgrading to v17.5.

Important Note: As mentioned below in March of 2023, we no longer support hosting FacilitatePro on Windows Server 2012 R2 since Microsoft has withdrawn support for that release. Older versions of FacilitatePro may still run on 2012 R2 but we cannot support that environment and recommend that you upgrade to Windows 11 or Windows Server 2016 or later.

Microsoft Server 2012 R2 Support

March 31, 2023 - As Microsoft ends the “Extended Support” for this OS in October 2023, though the FacilitatePro application may still work, it will no longer be certified nor supported on Microsoft Server 2012 R2.  We recommend you update to a newer Windows Server version. FacilitatePro is currently certified and supported by Windows 11 and Windows Server 2016 - 2022. 

This only applies to running the FacilitatePro server software. It does not apply to accessing FacilitatePro from a Web Browser. We continue to support almost all current web browsers running under most hardware and OS platforms.

FacilitatePro v17.1

January 5, 2022 - FacilitatePro v17.1 is now available for immediate download.

A few v17.1 Highlights:

This new version includes security and non-security fixes, minor features enhancements, and we have upgraded FacilitatePro so that the application itself is now officially certified to run on Windows 11 and Windows Server 2022 as well as Windows 10 and Windows Server 2012 R2-2019. As always we continue to allow users to access FacilitatePro from almost any browser running on almost any platform.

In addition, to provide the latest in security we have upgraded to Open SSL 1.1.1l.

Feel free to contact us if you would like more information on upgrading to v17.1.

FacilitatePro v17.0

May 17, 2021 - FacilitatePro v17 is now available for immediate download.

A few v17 Highlights:

Security is always a major concern of ours and v17 continues that vigilance. In addition to other security enhancements, v17 introduces optional Two Factor Authentication and the ability to automatically lock out user accounts if they enter an incorrect password after a specified number of incorrect tries.

V17 also offers new flexibility and power for Premium level leaders. Among other changes, one key change is that they can now conduct multiple conferences / sessions at the same time, each with its own unique logon ID. For Plus level leaders we now provide an option to allow them access to a key Premium and Pro level feature. They can now disable the FollowMe option so that session participants can self navigate from topic to topic instead of being locked into following the leader from topic to topic. 

V17 also introduces a new file structure system which makes managing and upgrading FacilitatePro even easier going forward. All of the key site specific directories and files are now contained within one subdirectory within the main FacilitatePro directory. 

These are just some of the key additions to FacilitatePro v17.

Contact us for more information and for instructions on how to upgrade.
