New in NSS 9.90 SR2

You are here:


Stability and Predictability
As a service release sprint, the focus for this latest development cycle has been on solidifying the advances made in NSS 9.90 and 9.90 SR1; fixing issues and making small extensions to the capabilities introduced in those versions. The importance of NSS 9.90 SR2 should not be down-played however; it is another important milestone achieved for Northern’s user data management solution.
Display Polish
Clarity and responsiveness are fundamental for user experience. NSS 9.90 SR2 includes a long list of small, but cumulatively significant improvements in how information is displayed. From simple additions like improved labeling on pie-charts, to more advanced changes such as intuitive sorting in duplicate file analysis lists.
NOTE: The commercial agreement in place between your organization and Northern will affect which software capabilities are available to you. Please contact your Account Manager, or to discuss the use cases NSS can be put to in your organization.


This change log details changes made between NSS 9.90 SR1 (9.90.22449.1810) and 9.90 SR2 (9.90.22550.1812).
