Xibo in the Cloud now fully supports 1.8.0 instances, but we’ve left you in control of whether you use 1.8 or 1.7 – we encourage everyone to try 1.8! All new accounts will need to choose a version to install before they get created on the Cloud, there is a version selector in the Shop. Upgrades are available as usual, see “Upgrading your Cloud CMS Instance” for instructions.

We’d like to announce Xibo for Android 1.8 R101 which has compatibility with CMS 1.8 and backwards compatibility with CMS 1.7 and 1.6. We are providing free of charge upgrades to this release for any licences purchased since 10th October 2016, you can check if your licences are eligible by looking at the number of upgrades your licence pool has been assigned in the customer portal. Upgrades for older licences are available at £4 GBP per licence. For full instructions for upgrading, purchasing upgrades and installing the update itself, see “Upgrading Xibo for Android“.

New domains to choose from

Xibo in the Cloud has experienced a little upgrade recently with the addition of 2 new domains. We have been running CMS instances on the Spring Signage cloud platform for over 2 years on the ‘xibo.co.uk’ domain and felt our customers needed a little more choice.

We are pleased to announce:

  • signcdn.com
  • signagecloud.com

The new domains can be selected when creating a new instance and are available in London, New York and Singapore as normal.

Xibo 1.6.0 is released, Spring Signage is ready!

Spring Signage are very pleased to announce that last night we released a new 1.6.0 Xibo to the Open Source community. This release represents just over a year of improvements and bug fixes – find out more over on the Xibo Announcement.

It was very important to us that our Hosting and Android customers were fully supported immediately after this release, so that is exactly what we have done!

Xibo for Android

The latest R31 release of Xibo for Android fully supports connecting to the 1.6.0 CMS and will be automatically available free of charge to all our new & existing Android Customers.

Upgrading to 1.6.0 will also add the following benefits:

  • Improvements to Text, Ticker and DataSet media types
  • Improvements to File Downloads (pre-caching more content)
  • Improvements to the assessment for when a Layout is ready to be shown
  • Better logging and proof of play statistics

If you are running an earlier version of Xibo for Android, you might still be OK! Anything over R28 has support for 1.6.0 built in.

Xibo Hosting

The 1.6.0 release of Xibo is also available on our Hosting platform from today! All new accounts, including demo accounts, will come with 1.6.0 as standard and you can upgrade your existing hosting directly from the customer portal.

We wanted to make the process clear, so we have written an article to take you through it!
