    Hi Kim,

    Could you please advise on the download location of the APM UI 7.7?

    It is not included in the bundles I found on Passport Advantage.

    Is there a similar page available for 7.7 like it is for 7.6.0.1:

    Kim,

     

    Many thanks!

    So there is no 7.7 APM UI? It is quite confusing as I have an APM version 7.7 beta, what is that then? When is that going to be GA?

    Hi,

    APM UI 7.7 supersedes APM UI 7.6.0.1.  At present, we are only offering APM UI 7.7 in beta format only.  APM UI 7.7 will GA in Q4 2013.

    Kind Regards
