Are You Code Current?

Being code current is defined as running code that is less than 12 months old. If you are not sure how to check your currency, a good indicator is if your code version number is 7.0 or greater. If you are running old code (lower than 7.0), not only are you missing out on new features, functionality and fixes, but you are also not taking advantage of current security enhancements. Being code current is important. Customers on newer code enjoy greater functionality and fewer outages and require fewer service requests.
