Olivia,

Where do I find the '[*]Add performance statistics feature' in version 3?

Thanks!

PS: Are you going to have a Christmas sale like you did last year for iStorage licenses :P

Looks like Version 4 is where the performance statistics is going be. Any idea of a release date?

Also noticed 3.30 was released, any release notes on what changed since 3.10?

Thanks!

The newest final version is 3.20, we updated the content of this topic.
For performance statistics, it is already included in 3.0, you can see it when you click a target.
We need around 2 months for internal and public testing for 4.0 major upgrade.

Is the update procedure from 3.20 to 4.0 the same as previous versions?

Olivia,

Noticed you just released iStorage 4.30 today. Any issues upgrading from 4.05 or is it the same as before, stop istorage and tray program and install new version into current istorage folder?

Thanks!

For those contemplating upgrading from 4.05 to 4.30 hold off for now.
I tried it on a test system and the results were not good. Waiting to hear from support.
