As a first implementation of this, based on customer feedback, we are offering Hippo in Simplified Chinese and Spanish. Further languages can be requested by customers.

  24. 24. What’s New Hippo 11 24 Choosing an Upgrade Path Major vs Minor Releases Hippo is released three times a year: a major release before summer and two minor ones in autumn and spring Minor releases are backwards compatible and upgrading is effortless. Major releases can break backwards compatibility, which means a larger upgrade effort might be needed for the customer. Customers can choose to follow minor releases to ensure they always have the latest features available. Alternatively, for customers that do not want to update often, the option is offered to stay on a supported release for one or two years (depending on their support contract).
