Releasing a New Version

How often can I expect to see an update?
The Usher platform is built using the Agile method and as such frequent small increments are released every couple of weeks. Some increments only include defect fixes, some include enhancements.
Are the APIs going to be backward compatible? If so, for how long?
The Usher platform team works very hard to ensure backward compatibility except when security could be compromised. When backward compatibility can not be achieved with the older APIs, new APIs will be built instead and the old ones marked deprecated.
How do I know when an update is announced?
We are working on a system that will allow us to notify the developer community about our updates as they become available. In the meantime, keep in touch with us and ask us every 4 weeks for any update.
How can I choose an updated version of the SDK?
Contact your Usher representative to get access to the updated SDK of your choice.
