    Jive version history and feature comparison

    huong_ho888

      Jesse Fuller  I found out from our VA Pulse community manager that we are on Jive 7 specifically version 7.021.  I have a few questions.

      1. Where (documentation/place) can I find out more about Jive version history and feature set?
      2. Does Jive maintain major and minor Apps release version? 
        1. What is the frequency?  Yearly for major and quarterly for minor?
        2. What about patch and security update?
      3. Is there a high level feature improvement or comparison between Jive 7 vs 8 vs 9?

       

      We are expected to see a new roll out version based on Jive 8.  There will be a significant improvement in UI and performance.  But we don't know the specifics of chagnes.

       

      Thank you and have a nice weekend!

       

      Warmly,

      Huong

          Hi Huong,

           

          For more information on changes from Jive 7 -> Jive 8 or 9 I think you will find the following helpful:

           

          Step 2: Learn What's Changed from Jive 7 & 8 to Jive 9

           

          Additionally, I think you will find the Jive 9 Upgrade Planning Guide and Jive-n 8 Upgrade Planning Guide helpful in planning your upgrade as well.

           

          Thanks!

              Hi Jesse,

               

              Thank you very much for the links.  I feel like I stumble on a treasure of Jive knowledge.    It appears that you maintain several versions of Jive:  one for the cloud option and the other for hosted/on premise option.

               

              • Cloud:
                • Example:                 Jive SBS 2016.3.4.0
                • Update Frequency: Quarterly
                • User control:           None
              • Hosted/On Premise:
                • Example:                 Jive SBS 7.0.2.1
                • Update Frequency:  Less frequent as determined by the company
                • User control:            Full control (you upgrade by yourself)


              Please let me know if my understanding is incorrect.

               

              Warmly,

              Huong

                  Hi Huong,

                   

                  No problem, glad I could point you to the upgrade groups.

                  • Cloud:
                    • Example:                 Jive SBS 2016.3.4.0
                    • Update Frequency: Quarterly
                    • User control:           None
                  • Hosted/On Premise:
                    • Example:                 Jive SBS 7.0.2.1
                    • Update Frequency:  Less frequent as determined by the company
                    • User control:            Full control (you upgrade by yourself)


                  Please let me know if my understanding is incorrect.

                   

                  For the Hosted/On-prem you are correct. For Cloud, there is not a set schedule for updates, however historically these have been around each quarter.

                   

                  Thanks!
