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