Reply to: Reason to upgrade to XMETAL8?February 4, 2014 at 8:51 pm
I would recommend running the most recent version of XMetaL Author Enterprise that any particular CMS vendor officially supports to avoid any potential issues. There may not be any but if they have tested 7 and not 8 then the safest thing to do is to go with 7.
However, you might wish to ask them when they plan to support 8 in case that date aligns with your own upgrade plans or you can push your date out a little bit.
Also, please check the exact version of XMetaL Author Enterprise that has been tested by SDL. Several dot releases of both 7 and 8 were released, with 8.0.1.051 being the latest.
