No More Java!

Mar 11, 2013



Howdy folks, we've been relying on a Java applet to support our local file linking features and for integration with Tank. Unfortunately, Java is having a rough year. We understand that it has been a bummer to support Java on your workstations, and that it's getting worse.

I'm happy to announce that we're going to kill off our Java applet and replace it with a browser plugin built on the FireBreath framework. We're starting a private beta program to work out any kinks in the plugin, so please reach out through support if you have an urgent need to get off Java now. We're planning for a public beta release in April, a 1.0 release in May, and to remove support for the Java applet in July.

Thank you for your patience as we make this transition!
