Sage New Version Releases


Sage releases new versions periodically, and these are either "point" releases (e.g. 26.1 to 26.2) or new "year" versions (e.g. 26 to 27).  The "point" versions do not normally require an update to Woosage or any change to the settings.  Changing from one "year" version to another can be selected in the Woosage Control Centre (Settings>Sage>Sage Version) and restarting the Woosage Service (Utilities>Restart).  
If you are using Woosage Pro you will need to remove the ODBC DSN (see Using the ODBC Capability) and then go to Woosage Control Centre>Utilities and click the blue Create DSN button
When Sage release a new "year" version we have to create a new version of Woosage to incorporate the new version of Sage Data Objects (SDO) and then thoroughly test it before release.  This usually takes around a week to complete, so please check it is available before upgrading Sage.
if your are moving to a new "year" version, which has just been released by Sage, then check that a new version of Woosage, containing the update for the new Sage version, is available.

WooCommerce Releases

Although WooCommerce is updated frequently the vast majority of updates do not require any updates to Woosage and we test the latest version of Woosage against new version of WooCommerce as they are released.  Woosage interacts with WooCommerce via the REST API V3.
