Upgrade to FileWave v15.2.0 Now Available

We are thrilled to announce the much-anticipated release of Version 15.2.0, marking a significant leap forward in the world of IT management and software deployment. At FileWave, we are dedicated to empowering organizations with cutting-edge solutions, and this release is no exception.

Packed with powerful features, enhanced performance, and a user-friendly interface, the new version represents a culmination of meticulous development and valuable user feedback.

Key Version 15.2.0 Improvements

Our goal in the 15.2.0 release is to deliver Apple enhancements for iOS 17, iPadOS 17 and tvOS 17, together with macOS Sonoma 14. We also introduced properties for Windows MSI installers.

With the end of life of CentOS in summer 2024, FileWave 15.2.0 is available on CentOS 7.9 and Debian 12.2 for a smooth transition from CentOS to Debian. No action is needed on your part now but look for information on migrations from us in the new year.
