Benefits: Compatibility with current browsers and feature enhancements will add value for current and future FootPrints agents. Maintaining a current supported release allows for vendor support.

Related information: Agents can preview the new version at https://footprints-11.uits.iu.edu. The preview instance is a copy of the production environment from June 11. Agents and workspace administrators with logins in production as of that date are automatically included in the preview version. Workspace administrators will want to explore the new form designer; we encourage all agents to log in and take a look at the interface in general. Changes made to the preview environment will not be ported to the production environment.

Primary clients: FootPrints workspace agents, administrators and workspace owners.
