As of the February 29, 2008 version of TeleFlow, the version number of the Server is built into the executable. This release will be available on the website on March 7, 2008. Versions of TeleFlow prior to February 29, 2008 did not include version information within the TeleFlow Server executable.

There are several reasons for this change:

  • There was no easy way to correctly identify the version number of the TeleFlow installation, without reviewing the TeleFlow logs. The executable needed to be running to discover its version.
  • There was confusion over which product held the correct version information, as the Designer would have a different version number than the Server's logs would show.
  • Automatic updates were not possible without this information within the executable.

The last point bears some explanation. In the past, users of TeleFlow would need to visit the website that supported it in order to determine if an upgrade was available. As of version v2008.2.29 the TFRegister program has been replaced with an enhanced GUI application that will communicate to and check for available updates, and then enable to user to automatically download and install the latest release, including files for the Enterprise edition, should they should exist.

Older versions of TeleFlow can only have the version information determined by reading the TeleFlow Log files (tfserver.log and application log output) in the first line. These versions of TeleFlow Server will have as their version number when reading the version information in the executable.
