Product Versioning

Teledyne CARIS is committed to bringing the latest technology through regular release of commercial off the shelf (COTS) software applications to subscription customers. This includes release of new Major, Minor and Update releases. 

  • Major releases (also referred to as a Series, i.e HPD 4 series) include significant changes including API changes with possibly high impact on customer workflows. Release cadence for active products is typically every 1 to 3 years.
  • Minor releases include medium changes with medium to no impact on customer workflows. Release cadence for active products is typically 6 to 12 months.
  • Update releases include bug fixes and small improvement with minimum risks and low or no impact on customer workflows. Release cadence for active products is typically one every month.

In order to ensure access to regular maintenance and the latest technology, Teledyne CARIS encourages all customers to move to the latest released version as soon as feasible. Only the latest Minor version on the latest two Major series receives Updates maintenance. For example, there are two maintained versions of HPD:

  • HPD 3.2
  • HPD 4.1

Regular Updates releases are delivered only on these two actively maintained versions in the series.

End of Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 Support

With Microsoft ending its extended maintenance for Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 in January 2020, Teledyne CARIS has also ended maintenance and certification of CARIS applications on these platforms.

Teledyne CARIS Customer Services will still respond to Service Requests for clients under the subscription program that are running on either of these operating systems, but will not be able to reproduce items on these environments.

We strongly encourage users to move their CARIS applications to Windows 10 or Windows Server 2019 (or 2012/2016) as the platform of choice.
