Wyse ThinOS 8.6 Maintenance Release 7 is now available

This week Dell released the next update for ThinOS 8. It is version 8.6_511 or the so-called Maintenance Release 7.
Actually, this release wasn’t planned to get released that early. However, due to the bug that PCoIP wasn’t working anymore after upgrading to 8.6_412, the code was released earlier.
Also worth noticing is that this release is only for 3040, 5010, 5040, 5060, 5070, 5470, and 7010.
Support for older units like 3010, 3020, 3030 was removed.

ThinOS 9.0 and WMS 2.0 are posted on Dell.com

Today Dell has posted ThinOS 9.0. A few days ago they already posted WMS 2.0.

While WMS 2.0 is more an evolution product, ThinOS 9 is completely new. Dell has rewritten the whole code as they were kind of stuck when it comes to new enhancements. With the brand new codebase, they are now able again to easily and quickly react to customers’ needs and 3rd-party vendors’ wishes. Important side fact: ThinOS 9 does no longer support INI files. The only way to configure the OS remotely is via WMS 2.0 now.
