Advanced Installer 18.4 Release Notes

On June 28th, 2021 Caphyon Ltd. is proud to announce the release of Advanced Installer 18.4 in Free, Professional, Enterprise and Architect editions. This release is available for download on the Advanced Installer website.

This month we are extending our virtualization management support with our new Docker integration.

The new support for Docker containers reduces the hassle when setting up your repackaging virtual environment and diminishes the requirements that must be met when preparing your setup.

Explore the entire virtualization management support from Advanced Installer and learn when to use each of our integrations while repackaging in our most recent webinar: Repackaging in Docker Container | Virtualization Spectrum: Containers vs. Virtual Machines (VMs).
