I’m happy to announce that Language Weaver Edge 8.6.3 has been released and is now available from our download servers.

Good to know
If you are already using Language Weaver Edge 8.6.0, 8.6.1 or 8.6.2, no new license is needed, and you can upgrade your existing instance directly.
If you are upgrading from Language Weaver Edge 8.5.x or earlier, a new license will be required, and you can request it through your gateway account.
The Kubernetes deployment package will be updated shortly, and we will post a specific announcement when new images are available on our registry.
If you have any questions, please reach out to your Account Manager or the Language Weaver support team.
We hope you’ll enjoy this new release!
