Hello everyone,

1. do you know when the newest Mbusiness build for Linux will be available?
2. will this be a new build of 5.5, or a new version 5.7 ?
3. can we automate ipaq updates (upgrade from 5.5 build 113 to a newer
build) using a binary channel?

thanks,
Marcin Zastawny

The evaluation version of mBus for Linux on ianywhere.com is 5.7.

Others may correct me if I'm wrong, but I do not believe this is
possible. You *can* download a .cab via a binary channel, but I do not
believe that it will automatically launch to upgrade the client.

Hope this helps,

Actually, cab files do get automatically unpacked and
installed, but there's a couple of problems with attempting
to do this

1. You're on your own in tracking down the right cab files
for your architecture; we don't put them in plain sight for
you. You'd have to extract and host them yourself

2. The user would have to be instructed to make sure they
stop the M-Business Client and M-Business Connect, otherwise
they'll get "file in use" messages during the device-side
install

3. You won't upgrade the desktop M-Business Connect conduits
if you do a device-only install. (This may not be a problem
for you.)

Auto-upgrading the client is a feature that many customers
have asked for. I'll make sure your vote gets added to the
list.

Auto-upgrade of the client will be a feature in 6.0, shipping later this
year.
