We are trying to find out what is the difference between version version 3.0.2 and version 3.1.4 and what does it each that other does not?  Also, is version 3.1.4 the highest version in 3.x version? Can someone please confirm?

3.0.2 was the last release in the 3.0.x branch. After that, we moved to 3.1.x.  Here are the release notes for each version.  Note that 3.1.2 was the last version in the 3.1.x branch, so I am not sure where you saw a version 3.1.4.  That never existed.

Hi Trevor - Thanks for responding.

Could you confirm if there is a 3.2.x version? or after Version 3.1.2 , you moved to P21 version 4? 

What is the difference between last 3.x version and version 4?

Please see all details in P21 Community Application CHANGELOG.txt in "C:\Users\<User Name>\AppData\Local\Programs\Pinnacle 21 Community\resources" folder

Changes in validation rules are listed in Engine Changelog you can find in "C:\Users\<User Name>\Documents\Pinnacle 21 Community\configs" folder.

Kind Regards,

Hi Sergiy- Thanks for responding earlier.

We have a SAS server that has Microsoft version Windows Server 2016 Standard Edition 64 bit , OS Version: 10.0.14393 N/A Build 14393.

If we install P21 version 4.0 or greater, would there be any issues? Is p21 V4.o or higher compatible with this version of windows? Please confirm.

Want a demo?

Let’s Talk.

We're eager to share and ready to listen.
