Diplomat MFT 9.0 Release Notes

*************** IMPORTANT ****************

  1. Diplomat MFT v9 requires a new license file format. Contact Coviant Software if you have not already received a replacement license file.
  2. Diplomat MFT v9 introduces a new way to manage and monitor your Diplomat MFT platform: a web-based administration accessible from any modern desktop browser, such as Edge, Chrome, Firefox, or Safari, and not including Internet Explorer. The legacy Diplomat MFT Client application is still available in 9.0, and a shortcut to this app in the installation folder. Switching to the current web admin as soon as possible is strongly recommended, as future support for the legacy application is not guaranteed.
  3. All Diplomat Remote Agent sites MUST BE UPGRADED when upgrading from versions prior to 8.3.1.
  4. Upgrading directly from versions prior to 7.3 is not supported. Contact Coviant Software before proceeding.
