This update focuses on modernizing critical infrastructure to allow us to develop faster and more reliably on the platform.

We're very excited to share the launch of Checkbox 8, the first major product update in over five years, and our initial release since the acquisition of Checkbox from Polychrome. This update focuses on modernizing critical infrastructure to allow us to develop faster and more reliably on the platform. Available for both cloud and on-premises deployment, Checkbox 8 introduces several highly requested features aimed at bolstering security and reliability for our users. Discover more about our journey and the new features at Checkbox.

What's New in Checkbox 8?

Checkbox 8 comes packed with a host of new features and enhancements designed to offer significant improvements in performance, stability, and security. For example, with Microsoft's clear direction that .NET represents the future, transitioning away from the .NET Framework became a necessary move for us. This shift towards .NET from the .NET Framework is pivotal due to the multiple benefits it provides.

Additionally, all future innovations and updates are being made in .NET, promising us and our customers improved performance and support. In contrast, the .NET Framework is set to receive only critical security updates gradually. Unlike the .NET Framework, which is bundled with Windows and updated across the system by Windows Update, .NET is distributed independently. This approach offers greater flexibility and control over application versioning and deployment, aligning better with diverse development needs.

The change in framework necessitated the replacement of some of our libraries, including those used for LDAP (Active Directory). We've adopted newer, and better-supported libraries. This update and upgrade serve as a nod to that understanding, reinforcing our commitment to providing the most advanced and reliable solutions possible.
