MP Author & MP Author Pro Version 8.3

We are pleased to announce the General Availability of MP Author version 8.3 (both free and Professional versions). We’ve made lots of updates and improvements to the products. Here’s a summary of the changes:

  • The default target for Windows discoveries is now Windows Operating System, rather than Windows Computer. Kevin Holman made a compelling case for this during MP University.
  • Fixed problems when creating fragments, but some required parts were not included.
  • Allow fragment parameters to be sanitized wherever required, no just automatically in IDs.
  • New parameters for fragments:
    •  ##ServiceDisplayName## for the display name of a service
    •  ##Date## and ##DateTime## are automatically filled in with the current date/time
    •  ##FragmentName## substitutes in the name of the current fragment
    •  ##FragmentVersion## substitutes in the version number of the fragment
    •  ##FragmentLastModified## substitutes in the last modified date of the fragment
    •  ##parameters## can be used in the list of Required References
    •  Aliases will be updated in replacement values.
  • When creating or editing alert generating rules, support is now added for AlertOwner.
  • Several dialogs were modified to remember their last user selected size and position.
  • Several message boxes now include a “don’t show this again” checkbox.
  • As well as other bug fixes and optimizations.

MP Studio 8.3 will be released shortly. Please keep an eye on this blog for the announcement.
