Specify 6 Release History

We regularly issue software updates, users are automatically notified at start-up when an update is available.

[Note: A bug introduced into the Specify 6 Updater prevents 6.7.02 and 6.7.03 installations from automatically updating. When 6.7.04 is released, sites operating 6.7.03 or earlier versions will receive a notification upon startup of an available update, but it will not automatically download and install. The 6.7.04 release will need to be downloaded from this web site and updated ‘manually’ by running the downloaded installation package. The Specify Updater has been fixed in 6.7.04; it will announce and install future releases automatically if the site preference for auto-updates is set.]

Less frequently we update Specify’s database structure (schema). This table shows the history of Specify 6 releases and database schema updates.
