2015 Release Status

There have been no major updates/releases yet for 2015.  Once the NERC GADS Working Group finalizes the cause code list for 2015, we’ll have an update announcement; otherwise, there have been no changes in either code or NERC GADS requirements to warrant a new release at this time.

The 15.x.x.x release will require Microsoft .Net Framework 4.5.2. (The first number in the version is the release year so 15.x.x.x is a 2015 release)

GADS OS prior to Version is based on Framework 3.5 SP1 that was released on 08/11/2008. There will no longer be Microsoft mainstream support for the Framework 3.5 SP1 version after January 13, 2015 (service pack support end date: 04/09/2013) … i.e., no longer supported on this date.

Microsoft recommends that customers and developers using .NET Framework 4, 4.5, or 4.5.1 complete the in-place update to .NET Framework 4.5.2 before January 12, 2016 to continue receiving technical support and more importantly security updates.

Framework 4.5.2 was released on 05/05/2014 and is released for the following supported platforms: Windows 8/8.1, Windows 7 Service Pack 1, Windows Vista SP2, plus Windows Server 2012/2012 R2, and Windows Server 2008 SP2/2008 R2 SP1.

There are no significant code changes in going from 14.x.x.x to 15.x.x.x; just compiler changes required to target Framework 4.5.2.
