Hello everyone,

It is a pleasure to announce the general availability of WorldServer 11.2.3. It contains the following improvements and fixes:

Component ID Description
Performance improvements WSXI-11453, CRQ-9450

On SQL Server environments, performance has improved significantly when you import SDL Trados Studio return packages.

Important: As a result of this improvement, the WorldServer 11.2.3 database upgrade scripts contain breaking changes to the database schema, which means that you will not be able to upgrade from 11.2.3 to 11.3.0 or 11.3.1; however, you will be able to upgrade to the upcoming 11.3.2 or to other future versions such as 11.4.


Import performance has been improved for Studio return packages with assets whose corresponding file types use embedded content processing.


Processing performance has been improved when you submit a very large number of projects at the same time.

Workflow Engine CRQ-9030 An issue related to database deadlocks from the Workflow Engine when importing multiple return packages at the same time has been resolved.
Tasks WSXI-11019 On the Projects page of the WorldServer 11 interface, you can now complete all the active tasks in one or more projects or project groups even if those projects or project groups also contain completed, canceled, restarted, or succeeded tasks. The tasks that you complete have to be in the same workflow step.
REST API CRQ-8272 The /projectTypes endpoint now exposes both sourceLocale and targetLocales (restricted locales) correctly.

SDL will provide regular cumulative updates, so that customers can benefit from the latest improvements and prevent potential issues. You can find announcements about new updates here.

WorldServer 11.2.3 is available on the public FTP.

Important! For this release, you need to install Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable for Visual Studio 2017 (x86) on your FTS Server machine. Make sure you download the 32-bit version (x86) regardless of your system configuration. Before you install it, you might also need to apply certain Windows updates. For more information, see the Visual Studio 2017 system requirements.
