Dear Axigen Friends,

We are proud to announce you that we have released a new patch version, Axigen 8.1.2.

This version includes several major enhancements, such as the 64 bit compatibility on Windows Server Platforms (2008, 2012 and 2012 R2) or the integration with Kaspersky’s latest Anti-Spam technology*. The Ajax WebMail was extended to support Latvian and Arabic RTL (Right To Left) languages.
Last but not least, Axigen Outlook Connector 8.1.2 is compatible with various combinations of Windows 7, 8 or 8.1 (32 & 64 bit) and Microsoft Office 2013 (32 & 64 bit) **

Additionally, this version represents an additional consolidation step for the existing features in our product, by providing fixes for up to 60 reported issues related to Axigen server, Webmail interface (both Ajax and Standard) and Outlook Connector.

To see all that is included in Axigen 8.1.2, please consult the detailed list below.

As always, you will be able to begin the upgrade to the version 8.1.2 of the Axigen server and Outlook Connector by visiting the Downloads Area on our website and by downloading the desired product kits.

We would also like to remind you that, according to our technical support policy, only the current major Axigen version and the one preceding it are supported (i.e. at this moment, only the 8.0.x and 8.1.x product versions are eligible for receiving technical assistance).
