Release Status



48 Issues


We are pleased to announce that Version 70.18 of the Synergetic suite of products is available now.

The major changes in this release contains:

  • Security improvements
  • Another increment of APIs
  • STP2 fixes between version 70.16 and now
  • Compliance report improvements

In addition to these changes, this release contains compliance work, improvements and other bug fixes.

Please be aware that as of Synergetic Version 70.18 we have upgraded the underlying framework that Synergetic uses for its web products. Our web applications now use .NET Framework Version 4.8. Consequently any school that upgrades to Version 70.18 will be required to upgrade their server's .NET Framework version to 4.8.

Please refer to this document under the section Supported server operating systems to ascertain whether the target server supports .NET Framework 4.8.

To download the .NET 4.8 Framework, go to the Microsoft download site and select the option Download .NET Framework 4.8 runtime. Then execute the downloaded file and follow the instructions.
