Last week development released the 6.7.3663 update for ActiveRoles Server. Included in the update are some generic fixes as you would expect, but there is also a set of updates for a long standing limitation that only Internet Explorer worked properly. This update adds multi-browser support and allows the ActiveRoles web interface to be accessed from the following browsers:
- Firefox 5.0 and 6.0
- Google Chrome 13
- Safari 4 and 5
- Windows Internet Explorer 7.0, 8.0 and 9.0
It is interesting that the release notes don’t mention IE 6.0, but with information like this (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Internet_Explorer_6) being prevalent around the Internet it is not surprising. With the everyday increase in hacking and exploits attacks – anyone still using IE 6 should be afraid, very afraid and move to a secure and supported browser immediately. My installation experience was good. Installation went as expected with no surprises and things continued to work including the add-ins for QAS and Defender. Changing the color scheme is a bit tricky since you really are setting a single color that will be used in place of the standard Blue UI color. But for many customers this will be a welcome change from modifying XML files with new color codes.
