Almost everybody in IT world knows that Microsoft is going to release two new operation systems in this October. It will be brand new Windows 7 and major update for Windows 2008 – 2008 R2.
Several months ago we decided to get prepared to these new Windows versions in advance and test our Image Uploader with them.
First of all we were interested in Windows 7 as in a client platform where both Image Uploader ActiveX and Java will be launched in browsers. We have not found any major issues with previous versions of Image Uploader 6.x here.
Secondly we checked Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 from server platforms point of view. As we all know from Microsoft buzz these upcoming versions of Windows will have new Internet Information Services 7.5. And unfortunately it was a surprise for us here. IIS 7.5 did not want to recognize POST requests sent by Image Uploader 5.x and previous 6.x as a properly formed and returned HTTP error 400. So we had to spend some time and figure out what was wrong with requests. We found the reason and new Image Uploader 6.1.4 will be free of this problem. This new Image Uploader release will be avialable on our site by September, 19. Unfortunately if somebody is going to use Image Uploader with IIS7.5 as a server-side, you will need to have a version of Image Uploader not earlier than 6.1.4.
So Aurigma is ready for new Microsoft releases and upcoming Image Uploader 6.1.4 will be compatible with Windows 7 and Windows 2008 R2.
