Subject: [ACAT] Connexion client, new release, 64 bit support

Hi everyone. Sorry for the duplication, but since this topic has come up a few times, I thought I’d send this to a few lists. OCLC is pleased to let you know that we will be releasing a new version of the Windows-based Connexion client sometime over the next year. We don’t have the schedule worked out yet, but since several of you have asked about, we did want to go ahead and let you know that one has been scheduled.

We do expect the next release to be compatible with 64 bit versions of Windows. We know that this is important to many of you. 

We will supply more details in the coming months. We haven’t yet worked out all of the changes, the schedule, etc., but we will keep you informed.

Thanks, David

FYI: OCLC’s current “solution” for running Connexion Client on a x64 system is to install a x32 system in a virtual machine. (This is something I’ve actually done; blog post forthcoming.)
