Release Notes for Release 4.4.2
QAD Configurator Version: 4.4.2
Release Date: April 2009
QAD Product Suite Compatibility: eB2.1 SP4, QAD 2007, QAD 2007.1, QAD 2008 Standard, QAD 2008.1 Standard
Note: During the product life cycle, QAD changed the name of the former MFG/PRO eB2.1 product to QAD 2008 Standard. Individual releases of QAD 2008 Standard are identified by a decimal number; for example, QAD 2008.1 Standard. (The Service Pack 5 and 6 releases were branded as QAD 2007 and QAD 2007.1, respectively.) The Enterprise Financials version of the product is called QAD 2008 Enterprise and follows the same convention of identifying individual releases with a decimal number.
These release notes describe the most significant changes and fixes introduced with this version of QAD Configurator.
