vFabric GemFire 6.6.4 Release Notes
What's in the Release Notes
The release notes cover the following topics:
vFabric GemFire 6.6.4 addresses a compatibility issue with vFabric GemFire 6.6.3 and earlier clients that connect to vFabric GemFire 7.0 servers. If you are running vFabric GemFire 6.6.X and want to upgrade your servers to vFabric GemFire 7.0 while keeping your clients at 6.6.x, you should first upgrade both servers and clients to vFabric GemFire 6.6.4. This ensures that your 6.6 clients can still connect to GemFire 7.0 servers during your upgrade. For additional details on this issue, see http://kb.vmware.com/kb/2039980.
Note: If you plan to immediately upgrade all your clients and servers to vFabric GemFire 7.0, you do not need to upgrade to vFabric GemFire 6.6.4.
