The new instrumentation framework enables users in the tracing and monitoring of various web requests, ensuring the proper scaling of their STARLIMS systems.
New Unified Installer
A new Bridge and Native App component installer for HTML5 and XFD systems is now available, and it is not dependent on Internet Explorer.
