FileWave Version 15.3.0 (Unsupported)

The FileWave endpoint management suite allows you to manage your devices wherever they are, wherever you are, whatever they are, and all in one platform!

In the 15.3.0 product release, we're proud to present the fully matured Kiosk for iOS and iPadOS, leaving beta behind for a seamless experience. Our redesigned Kiosk for Desktop, available on macOS and Windows, offers a modern, user-friendly interface. Notably, we're expanding our support to Chromebook devices with new commands and rigorous bug fixing.

FileWave Official Version Support

FileWave development teams officially support two major versions at any time, N and N-1. For example, If we assume that the most recent version of FileWave is 15.3.x, then we will officially support versions 15.2.x and 15.1.x. Releases for major versions of FileWave occur roughly every quarter.

What does "officially support" mean? Officially supporting these versions means that we will investigate bug reports in these versions and patch issues that are significant. We will not produce patches for earlier versions than N-1, as this means allocating development resources to problems that are already potentially resolved instead of investing those resources into furthering the product. In short, if an issue is found in a version earlier than the officially supported versions, then remediation for the issue will be in the form of an application upgrade, or a patch to that more recent version.

This does not mean that you can't contact our support teams about an earlier version. They will, to the best of their ability, help you with older versions of the software but they will stop short of escalating tickets to our development teams and will likely recommend an upgrade so that you are getting the latest features and bug fixes.

Your existing FileWave Server must be version 13.3.1 or higher before you can upgrade to FileWave 14.7.2 and then from 14.7.2 you can upgrade to 15.3.0.  The minimum memory requirement for FileWave 14+ is 8GB.

Unified backend for Model Update (Technical Preview)

Model Update is one of the key features of FileWave; Model Update allows you to apply complex changes to your organization only when you’re ready to deploy them and to revert unwanted changes. FileWave 15.3.0 brings a new Model Update mechanism, now running in a single component. This is the first step before new features and improvements can be added to Model Update. In this version, we focused on consistency with existing Model Update (to make sure nothing changes in your deployments) and on shortening update times. Model Update “v2” is a Technical Preview in 15.3.0, so it is not enabled by default.

Improved Client / Booster / Server communication

FileWave 11 introduced Booster Routing, a feature that allows off-loading direct traffic to the server by routing messages via Booster. This feature provides additional security if you only allow boosters to connect to your server and have all your devices only reach boosters. With FileWave 15.0, the internal notification system has switched entirely to NATS, replacing ZMQ; NATS, in addition to built-in security features and improved performances, brings much more flexibility and can then be used in more areas. FileWave 15.3 can now use NATS as the communication protocol for all maintenance messages between client and server. Fileset delivery still uses the classic protocol, but messages like Fileset status or check-in now use the lightweight and fast delivery mechanism offered by NATS. 

Apple-Specific Changes

Declarative Device Management

FileWave 15.3.0 is the first implementation of Apple’s new device management mechanism, Declarative Device Management (DDM). It will use the new Status Report for applications, providing quick and accurate Fileset Status updates for apps installed via MDM (App Store apps) on compatible iOS, iPadOS, and tvOS devices.

Therefore, FileWave 15.3.0 contains the foundations for support for more DDM features, such as software update management or application installation via DDM, which are being built and will be provided in coming releases.

Bug Fixes and Improvements

1. Reduced Chromebook Sync Time

Issue: Some users reported extended sync times, with an average duration of around 15 minutes for certain customers. Sync was only performed once per day.

Resolution: We have addressed this concern by implementing optimizations that result in a 30% reduction in sync time. Chromebook syncing is now more efficient and streamlined, ensuring a faster and smoother experience.

2. Manual Sync Time Configuration

Issue: Users had limited control over the timing of Chromebook sync, with synchronization occurring only once daily.

Resolution: In response to user feedback, we have introduced a new feature that allows users to set up manual sync times. Sync intervals can be configured between 1 and 24 hours. If no specific time is set, the default sync interval remains at 24 hours. This enhancement provides greater flexibility in managing Chromebook updates according to your organization's needs.

3. Custom Field(s) Annotation Sync

Issue: Changes to annotated fields were causing discrepancies when updating the model.

Resolution:

These comprehensive resolutions address the reported issues, providing a seamless and efficient experience in managing Chromebooks, with real-time syncing of annotated fields and enhanced control over synchronization intervals.

The transition from App Portal version 15.0.0 to version 15.3.0 represents a significant evolution, akin to the transformative experience observed when comparing the Android Play Store and the App Store. This upgrade places a primary emphasis on completely overhauling the user interface (UI) to provide a sleek, contemporary, and exceptionally intuitive platform, aligns with our users' evolving expectations.

While version 15.0.0 laid the groundwork for functionality, version 15.3.0 responds to user feedback and industry trends, recognizing the demand for a more sophisticated and streamlined UI. Here's how the new version draws inspiration from the design excellence of both the Android Play Store and the App Store:

  1. Unified Design Paradigm:
    The UI design seamlessly unifies elements from both the Android Play Store and the App Store, creating a harmonious blend of familiarity and innovation.

  2. Intuitive Navigation:
    Building on the success of version 15.0.0, version 15.3.0 introduces a reimagined navigation system with intuitive menus, recognizable icons, and seamless flows, akin to the ease of navigation in both app marketplaces.

  3. Visual Delight:
    The new UI isn't just functional; it's a visual delight with engaging animations, subtle transitions, and tastefully curated visuals, providing an immersive experience similar to the Android Play Store and the App Store.

  4. Enhanced Customization:
    Version 15.3.0 brings enhanced customization options, allowing users to personalize their interface similar to the Android Play Store and the App Store, fostering a sense of ownership over their app experience.

  5. Responsive Design:
    Like the responsiveness of the Android Play Store and the App Store across devices, our app now adapts seamlessly to various screen sizes, ensuring a consistent and optimized experience.

Additionally, with version 15.3.0, we've introduced some enhancements. Users will now receive clear indications when installing certain filesets that a reboot is required for optimal performance. This improvement ensures transparency and empowers users with the necessary information for a seamless experience. By incorporating these enhancements, App Portal solidifies its commitment to delivering a cutting-edge, user-friendly experience that aligns with evolving user expectations and industry trends. Version 15.3.0 sets the stage for a future where App Portal evolves dynamically, staying at the forefront of user-centric innovation.

Note that you can upgrade boosters centrally using the Auto-Upgrade feature within the admin console. You can find out how to do that at this KB article.


Upgrading an Existing IVS

Most likely, your IVS is already at CentOS 7, and you can run the following to easily upgrade your existing IVS appliance:

# login via ssh / root
sudo yum update -y
sudo yum update -y filewave-IVS
sudo yum upgrade -y
sudo reboot

If you get a response to the above command that "no packages are marked for update", then you'll need to run the below just one time on this IVS:

# login via ssh / root
sudo yum install -y filewave-IVS
sudo yum upgrade -y
sudo reboot

If the version of your IVS is still running on CentOS 6, the upgrade path requires replacing your current appliance as CentOS 6 is End of Life. Upgrade instructions are detailed here for this scenario : IVS Upgrade/Migration Options.

FileWave Version 15.2.0 (Unsupported)

These downloads are provided for the purposes of migrations and should not continue to be used in production. You should upgrade to either the most recent release or the one prior. They can always be found here: Supported FileWave Versions

The FileWave endpoint management suite allows you to manage your devices wherever they are, wherever you are, whatever they are, and all in one platform!

Our goal in the 15.2 release is to complete iOS 17, iPadOS 17 and tvOS 17, together with macOS Sonoma (14).
FileWave 15.2 also introduces properties support for MSI installers.

FileWave 15.2 is available on both CentOS 7.9 and Debian 12.2, in order to facilitate transition to Debian distribution as a replacement for CentOS.

FileWave Official Version Support

FileWave development teams officially support two major versions at any time, N and N-1. For example, If we assume that the most recent version of FileWave is 15.1.x, then we will officially support versions 15.1.x and 15.0.x. Releases for major versions of FileWave occur roughly every quarter.

What does "officially support" mean? Officially supporting these versions means that we will investigate bug reports in these versions and patch issues that are significant.

Features and Updates in this Release

FileWave Management Suite

FileWave Central User Interface has been refreshed ; FileWave Central is adopting FileWave Anywhere more modern look and feel. We hope you’ll love as much as we do the new FileWave Central !

Apple-Specific Changes

Support for macOS Sonoma (macOS 14):

Testing macOS 14, we found that some changes are required to properly restart FileWave Desktop agent (fwcld) after upgrade. These changes have been added to version 15.1.

This means that:
* It is recommended to upgrade macOS clients to FileWave 15.1 prior to upgrade to macOS 14 ;
* As the changes are related to permissions and are solved by automatically deploying a TCC profile, it is recommended to MDM-enroll macOS devices. This issue can be worked around by making upgrade fileset a reboot fileset.

FileVault 2 enforcement:

It is now possible to enforce Full Disk Encryption (FileVault 2) at enrollment time to increase security in your organization.

Return to Service (iOS / iPadOS 17): Learn More...

Parameterized WiFi profiles are now support with Return To Service.

Profile is delivered to the device at the time EraseDevice command is issued, and parameterization is done by FileWave server ; this means that parameterization happens at the time the command is sent to the device, and uses current values, including user-based values.
As WiFi profile is required prior to the enrollment, it can't use new enrollment credentials for parameterization.

New profiles or profile modifications:

Network Relays:

Shared iPads:

VPP API : “v2” is now enabled by default (15.1)

VPP v2 API is not compatible with legacy VPP tokens (created before Apple School or Business Manager but with legacy vpp.itunes.apple.com service). Transferring licenses to Location-based token is highly recommended.

Windows-Specific Changes

MSI properties:

It is now possible to specify MSI properties to be applied during installation and, for installers supporting it, during uninstallation.

Default script:

Default script type is now PowerShell instead of Python (Central).

FileWave Imaging (IVS)

FileWave Networking Imaging 15.1.x brings compatibility with FileWave 15.2.x.

Kiosk 2.0 for iOS (Technical Preview)

The transition from version 1.0 to version 2.0 of our app signifies a major leap forward in terms of user experience and visual appeal, much like the transformation seen when comparing the Android Play Store and the App Store. In this upgrade, the primary focus has been on completely revamping the user interface (UI) to provide a sleek, modern, and highly intuitive platform that caters to our users' evolving expectations.

Version 1.0 laid the foundation for the app's functionality and introduced users to a diverse array of features and content. However, user feedback and industry trends have illuminated the need for a more sophisticated and streamlined UI that aligns with contemporary design principles and enhances the overall user journey.

With version 2.0, the app undergoes a stunning visual makeover, drawing inspiration from the aesthetic excellence of both the Android Play Store and the App Store:

  1. Unified Design Paradigm: Our new UI design unifies elements from both the Android Play Store and the App Store, creating a harmonious blend of familiarity and innovation. This design consistency ensures that users across various platforms feel comfortable while navigating the app.

  2. Intuitive Navigation: Building on the success of version 1.0, version 2.0 introduces a reimagined navigation system. Users can effortlessly explore and discover content thanks to intuitive menus, recognizable icons, and seamless navigation flows, akin to the ease of navigation in both app marketplaces.

  3. Visual Delight: The new UI is not just about functionality; it's a visual treat. Engaging animations, subtle transitions, and tastefully curated visuals combine to make every interaction with the app a delightful experience, echoing the immersive nature of the Android Play Store and the App Store.

  4. Enhanced Customization: Version 2.0 introduces enhanced customization options, allowing users to personalize their interface just as they would within the Android Play Store and the App Store. Users can arrange and prioritize content according to their preferences, granting them a sense of ownership over their app experience.

  5. Responsive Design: Much like the Android Play Store and the App Store's responsiveness across devices, our app now adapts seamlessly to various screen sizes and orientations. This ensures a consistent and optimized experience whether users are browsing on smartphones, tablets, or desktops.

By transitioning from version 1.0 to version 2.0 with a UI overhaul reminiscent of the Android Play Store and the App Store, our app solidifies its commitment to delivering an unparalleled user experience. This transformation isn't just about aesthetics; it's a testament to our dedication to meeting the evolving needs of our users in an engaging, intuitive, and visually striking manner. As we bridge the gap between the old and the new, version 2.0 sets the stage for a future where our app continues to evolve in tandem with user expectations and industry trends.

If when doing yum update or upgrade you get a note that no updates are available it may be that you block access to some countries. yum clean all can clear the cache so that the upgrades can happen.

Upgrading the FileWave Server
To install or upgrade the FileWave Server, use the following :

# login via ssh / root or put sudo at the start of each line
sudo yum update -y
sudo yum upgrade -y
sudo yum install -y --nogpgcheck https://fwdl.filewave.com/15.2.0/fwxserver-15.2.0-1.0.x86_64.rpm
# Apply patches to get the VPP patch that was done after 15.2.0 was finished
sudo /usr/local/filewave/python/bin/python /usr/local/filewave/django/manage.pyc apply_patch
sudo /usr/local/bin/fwcontrol apache restart
# Flush the scheduler
sudo /usr/local/filewave/python/bin/python /usr/local/filewave/django/manage.pyc flush_scheduler
sudo reboot

Upgrading a Booster
To install or upgrade the FileWave Booster, use the following:

# login via ssh / root
sudo yum update -y
sudo yum upgrade -y
sudo yum install -y --nogpgcheck https://fwdl.filewave.com/15.2.0/fwbooster-15.2.0-1.0.x86_64.rpm
sudo reboot

Note that you can upgrade boosters centrally using the Auto-Upgrade feature within the admin console. You can find out how to do that at this KB article.


Upgrading an Existing IVS

Most likely, your IVS is already at CentOS 7, and you can run the following to easily upgrade your existing IVS appliance:

# login via ssh / root
sudo yum update -y
sudo yum update -y filewave-IVS
sudo yum upgrade -y
sudo reboot

If you get a response to the above command that "no packages are marked for update", then you'll need to run the below just one time on this IVS:

# login via ssh / root
sudo yum update -y
sudo yum install -y filewave-IVS
sudo yum upgrade -y
sudo reboot

If the version of your IVS is still running on CentOS 6, the upgrade path requires replacing your current appliance as CentOS 6 is End of Life. Upgrade instructions are detailed here for this scenario : IVS Upgrade/Migration Options.
