Q&A -Troubleshooting performance issues in QlikView Server
Q: Will install of 1.04 halt if I have 1.1 already installed?
A: Yes, it will figure out that there is a version upgrade mismatch.
Q: As I can see in the track list, the future release track will get no service release numbers, e.g. release 2.1.1. Am I right? So if a bug is in 2.1 I have to go back to 2.0.1 or 2.0.2
A: Partially correct. The feature (not future) release track only get bug fixes on the .dot release. So in your example, a bug fix for 2.1 wll be fixed in 2.2 unless it is a critical issue around security or stability.
Q: Is there a road map for the feature releases that you can share so that partners can better advise clients on which track to stay on based on upcoming features?
A: There is an internal roadmap that only can be presented by Qlik employees. We are also working on other content for customers and potentially as well for partners.
Q: Have a question about support term. For example I have version 1.0 and I have updated it up to 1.0.3 will it still be supported for 1 year? - And the same is true for Feature releases?
A: All major releases will be supported for 12 months after the next major release. So 1.x will be supported for 12 months after 2.0 is released.
Q: What is there purpose of FR and SR releases limitation?I mean support period. It was a table in the presentation explaining the support period for different releases.
