What is/are: New in NSS 9.8 SR1 (Release Notes)


  • Continuous stability and scalability improvements
    As with all service releases, the primary goal is to deliver incremental improvements in the stability and scalability of the solution. Changes introduced in NSS 9.8 SR1 focus on improvements in the solution's web-based user interface and the data-gathering engine.
  • Continued support for Internet Explorer 8
    Although Microsoft ended support for IE8 in January 2016, many of Northern's customers are using this browser. NSS 9.8 SR1 includes a number of changes to ensure interoperability.
  • Graphical improvements
    Iterative changes within the layout of the software's web-based user interface to make communication clearer and data management more efficient.
