We are proud to announce that all of our software programs are Windows 8 and Windows Server 2012 RC compatible. The official release of Windows Server 2012 is scheduled to early September. We will do another round of extensive testing at that time and most probably we will be compatible with Windows Server 2012 without need to rewrite any code, because there should be no breaking changes in RTM.
General availability for Windows 8 is scheduled for October 26, 2012. For Windows Server 2012 — September 4, 2012. If you have a MSDN or TechNet subscription, you can grab a copy right away.
What’s new in regards to the Microsoft new OSes? There are some improvements and bug-fixes in Automation Workshop v1.3. There were some code path that we were not aware of, and due to some changed behavior in Windows 8 API implementation, we needed to make some tweaks and fixes for File / folder watcher. Also, with every Windows release we need to update known OS list in Variable Wizard. See full list of changes.
All other programs work without any problems. Automation Workshop is the most complex of our software, so naturally it gets more bugs and more attention.
