Release Notes

NP-View releases are divided into two groups:

  • General releases that introduce new features and go through the full QA process once a quarter
  • Releases candidates to fix issues identified by clients that prohibit the proper operation of the system.

General releases following the below schedule:

  • January for the Winter release
  • April for the Spring release
  • July for the Summer release
  • October for the Fall release

Release candidates do not follow a fixed schedule since they are driven by support requests. Only Platform releases will be announced by email to our entire user community. Below is the list of available releases and the features / fixes in each release. If you have any question, please contact us at support@network-perception.com.

Note:  In April of 2022 NP renamed their product portfolio.

  • NP-Live became NP-View Professional Server
  • NP-View II became NP-View Professional Desktop
  • NP-View Essential is a new entry level product that was released in June of 2022.
  • NP-View Enterprise Server is a product under development for 2023 release and is being tested with select customers.
