TechDoc 11 Released

Fri, 06/30/2023 - 14:09

TechDoc 11 has been released. The setup program is intended to be used for a new installation or an upgrade of TechDoc 10 or TechDoc 10.1. Some of the main enhancements for TechDoc 11 release are shown below. See the release notes for full details on the release.

  • Support for deploying TechDoc 11 on the cloud. Initially, support for Azure has been added as it most closely aligns with the platforms that our customers currently run on. TechDoc can now use Azure SQL Databases for storage instead of using SQL Server. Other cloud providers will be considered in the future
    based on customer interest.
  • Render is also supported in the cloud by installing the DM on an Azure server that supports nested virtualization. After TechDoc is installed on the DM, a
    Render VM can be created on the DM Azure server using Hyper-V. This first Render configuration simplifies management and costs of the DM and
    Render in the cloud. Other cloud-based Render configuration scenarios may be considered in the future based on customer interest.
  • Improved security was a major focus of this release; including static code analysis of the entire code base and a thorough review of all third-party libraries and modules, which included the elimination of many, the upgrading most remaining ones, and a further tightening of their configuration and use to eliminate as may unneeded features as possible.
  • Improvements to allow TechDoc to house and process even more documents with less resources.

The setup program is available on the TechDoc 11 Downloads Page and the installation guide and release notes are available on the TechDoc 11 Documentation Page.

We are still in the final stages of porting the Forums to the Backdrop CMS way of doing things but it shouldn't be much longer until you will be able to post to the forums.

Thank you for your patience while we complete this transition and thanks to the Backdrop CMS developers that helped us with multiple issues we encountered during the process.
