FileWave Server on CentOS - EOL

As FileWave continues to develop our industry-leading multi-platform solution, our primary goal is to make it as simple, stable, and scalable as possible. With the End of Life of CentOS on June 30th 2024, beginning with 15.2.0, the FileWave Server will be shipped for Debian Linux and macOS. Although we will produce FileWave Server for CentOS 7 with 15.2, 15.3, and 15.4, we will be looking to not continue to produce CentOS installers for Server or Boosters after the June 30th EOL date.
