Published on

We are very excited to announce the release of InstallBuilder 9! The latest release represents a major step forward for organizations that want a simple way to deliver an exceptional installation user experience across all major platforms. More than eight months in the making, InstallBuilder 9 adds a number of new important features, such as:

  • Significant speed increase and reduced memory consumption. Your customers will experience 25% faster installation times and 20% reduction in installer size on average.
  • Floating user support so multiple devs can work in InstallBuilder
  • Support for the latest OS versions including Windows 8, OS X 10.9 and the latest versions of Ubuntu, Red Hat Enterprise and Solaris.
  • Retina display support in Qt mode that greatly improves the experience of end users running on OS X by making use of the high pixel density of these increasingly popular screens.
  • HTML license support, a feature previously only available for Qt developers, is now available for all InstallBuilder users. InstallBuilder 9 provides licenses in both plain text and HTML format on Windows, Mac OS X and Linux (32 and 64-bit).
  • New YAML actions, <yamlFileSet> and <yamlFileGet> to update and query information stored in YAML files for convenient packaging and configuration.
