All About MEX Releases

Here at MEX, we take pride in working closely with our customers to improve our solutions.

All our releases go through thorough testing and a Major and Minor release approach.

What is the difference between Major and Minor release version?

Our updates are rolled out in a Major and Minor software versioning approach. Where smaller minors are released over time and a collection of them are then amalgamated into a major.

A Major release introduces wide-ranging changes to the existing MEX software version, including new features to improve the user experience. This release is made up of all the subsequent minors that have been released since the last major. When a major is released, all customers that have automatic updates turned on will get the update.

A Minor release introduces small improvements to MEX’s functionality, usually off the back of bug fixing. These releases allow us to contact the affected customers and get their issues resolved right away. All minor releases are only applied if an admin goes into their MEX system and checks for an update.

Importance of Backups

Taking consistent backups of your MEX system is important. If you do not have a schedule in place for this, we strongly advise that you talk to your IT Team.

Backups safeguard your data and in the event of an issue; a major outage; or accidental upgrades, that backup can be used to get you back on track.
