do i need 2018 r2?

Postby ihumby-09 on Mon Nov 26, 2018 9:41 am

I have used Flare in the past (2012), and now am using it again at a different company.

I am getting the upgrade popup (2018 r2). I looked at the contents of the release, but not sure I need these features.

Can I download the new software without installing it? Is the installation easy (what steps are needed after the install)?

What is the harm of not installing this version?

Installation is straight forward, at least it was in the past. Cannot speak as to how harmful it is to install, depends quite a bit on your project and how changes would negatively impact it. As far as I know, there is no need to install the update if you don't want to.

oh, there is one very good reason for me: The bug which changes your window pane layout, deleting the toc editor window, is fixed in 2018-r2.
see here: viewtopic.php?f=4&t=18961&p=132033&hilit=fltoc#p132033

So I recommend using 2018-r2. I hated it, when I had to readjust my chosen window pane look with every opening of Flare.
