Default Upgrade and backwards compatibility

If I upgrade from FusionPro VDP Creator 9.3.36 to FusionPro VDP 10.0.26 for the Mac, would all my 9.3.36 files run in version 10.0.26?

Also is there a date for the release of Version 11?

Thanks,
Rick J.

Yes, all of your templates from older versions of FusionPro VDP will work in newer versions of FusionPro VDP. Backward compatibility is one of our top priorities, as there are tens of thousands of FusionPro jobs running in MarcomCentral, EFI Digital StoreFront, and other such systems, and all those jobs need to keep working as FusionPro is upgraded.

Our next release will likely be FusionPro VDP 10.1, but we have no release date yet.

I am happy to provide help and answers to questions when I can; however, there is no guarantee that I, or anyone else on this forum, will be able to answer all questions or fix any problems. If I ask for files to clarify an issue, I might not be able to look at them personally. I am not able to answer private messages, emails, or phone calls unless they go through proper Support channels. Please direct any sales or pricing questions to your salesperson or inquiries@marcom.com.

How To Ask Questions The Smart Way

The correct spellings are JavaScript, FusionPro, and MarcomCentral (each with two capital letters and no spaces). Acceptable abbreviations are JS, FP, and MC (or MCC). There is no "S" at the end of "Expression" or "Printable"! The name of the product is FusionPro, not "Fusion". "Java" is not is not the same as JavaScript.

Check out the JavaScript Guide and JavaScript Reference! FusionPro 8.0 and newer use JavaScript 1.7. Older versions use JavaScript 1.5.

return "KbwbTdsjqu!spdlt\"".replace(/./g,function(w){return String.fromCharCode(w.charCodeAt()-1)});

Our company is currently on v 9.3.26 of FusionPro, running Mac OS Yosemite. The accounting software we use is requiring me to upgrade my Mac to the Sierra OS at a minimum. So I'm trying to determine if 9.3.26 is compatible with Sierra (or High Sierra or Mojave for that matter), or if we'll need to upgrade our FusionPro at the same time we update our Mac OS.

Randy, we are on Mojave 10.14.1, Acrobat 11, InDesign 2015 for template creation, and FusionPro 9.3.36 and have no issues.
