Jive SharePoint Connector 126.96.36.199 is now available! This Jive SharePoint Connector 188.8.131.52 can only be used with Jive 5.0.1 and 5.0.2, and is not an upgrade from the Jive SharePoint Connector 1.6 plugin. SPC 5.0 has the same features as Jive SharePoint Connector 1.6. If you use Jive version 4.5, you can download SharePoint Connector 1.6, which is the most current version. If you have previously purchased the SharePoint Connector module and would like the latest version, please create a case in your customer group, and we will reply with a link and password. You can get the Jive SharePoint Connector by creating a case in your customer group. You cannot download it from your Purchases or the Plugin Downloads space.
Pursuant to standard software development practices and consistent with prior communications, Jive's policy for maintenance releases is to solely include fixes to issues identified since the prior release. To ensure smooth upgrades, new product features are purposely not introduced in the quarterly maintenance releases.
Furthermore, new features introduced in the latest version of Jive are not backported to previous versions by default. The rationale is the same as with maintenance releases; we aim to provide stability first and foremost and not force changes upon our customer base.
Following the EOL of Jive 4.0, the original SBS Mobile application will soon be removed from iTunes. You may wish to update the mobile permissions for your community to ensure that your current users aren't impacted while concurrently removing the link to iTunes from profile pages. For example, current users could be added to a permission group with mobile access while excluding the rest of the community members.
Jive 4.5.6+ communities licensed with the mobile module can utilize the cross-platform HTML5 mobile web application and/or recently released native iPhone application. Details can be found in the Mobile (Archived) group.
Jive is committed more than ever to the mobile enablement of our public and private communities. By making this move, we both eliminate confusion over which app is the latest in the App Store and can focus on delivering the best possible next-generation mobile experience.
If you have any questions related to your current Jive deployment and how this announcement may impact you please contact Jive Training and Support Resources or your account manager.
I'm pleased to announce the extension of support for Jive 4.5 through April 15, 2013. Simply stated, we've made this commitment because we've listened and we want you to be successful. By supporting 4.5 for a longer period, we ensure that you are able to seamlessly migrate to the latest and greatest version of Jive when most appropriate for you.
