Key Changes in Version 10.07.00 and later

A lot of work has gone into the auto-update process to make it seamless for the users. Version 10.07.00 or later of Theatre Manager represents the first version where all updated process now occur automatically via the TM Director processes. For example, the following processes are updated automatically:

  • TM Server - which provides all the latest web services and responsive web pages.
  • Nginx - which is the front end web server which we can now update automatically when vulnerabilities are discovered in OpenSSL. There are fewer than the past few years - but should one occur, it can be released and installed in very short order.
  • TM Desktop - is downloaded by the TM Server and placed in the database. From there, each desktop copy of Theatre Manager pulls down the latest version of itself

The above process are able to replace themselves very quickly with a newer version and keep on running, providing more or less an un-interrupted service to your patrons.

The postgres database server is the only part of Theatre Manager that does not auto-update. One reason is that it doesn't need to be updated as often, and if it is - it needs to be a planned outage.
