The current range of functions of WebOffice 10.8 is listed in the functionality matrix.

WebOffice 10.8 supports the ArcGIS versions listed in Server-Side Requirements as well as the browser versions listed in Client-Side Requirements.

Details about upgrading your existing WebOffice version to the current version can be found in chapter Upgrade WebOffice.

Since WebOffice 10.7 there is a BETA version of Geoprocessing (Python) based printing with the name VertiGIS Printing in addition to the already known WebOffice extensions - for more details see chapter VertiGIS Utilities Printing Tools.



With WebOffice 10.8 the working directory of the WebOffice author standalone changes. In order to continue using existing profiles, they must be exported before uninstallation and imported again after reinstallation. If a staging mapping is saved for taking projects productive, the corresponding .json files must be transferred from %APPDATA%\Roaming\SynerGIS\WebOfficeAuthorStandalone\UIData\GoLiveStagging to %APPDATA%\Roaming\VertiGIS\WebOfficeAuthorStandalone\UIData\GoLiveStagging.

Since WebOffice 10.8, the WebOffice author standalone is delivered as a 64-Bit application. It should be noted that the ArcMap connector, which is responsible for the connection to MXDs, is still delivered as a 32-bit application, since it is based on the 32-bit ArcObjects.
