Introduction

Limble has two release schedule options. This article details the two options.

A "release" refers to the process of updating the Limble software code that is used by our customers. These releases can contain new features, feature improvements, security updates, speed upgrades, and bug fixes. When there is a new release, the process is automatic and there is no interruption of service for the customer.

Continuous Release Schedule

All Limble accounts will be on the Continuous Release Schedule by default. The vast majority of Limble customers use Limble software that is on a continuous-release schedule. We typically do one release each day.

Customers on the Continuous Release schedule have the best experience with the Limble product as they always have the latest version and get to benefit from the newest features.

6-Month Release Schedule (Typically used for companies that need 21 CFR compliance)

This release schedule is more complex, as it is designed for companies who have very specific software release schedule needs. This option is only available for the Enterprise Plan and must be set up when the Limble account is created.

We only recommend this option for companies who absolutely need to do testing on each software release. This is typically dictated by the company's quality and risk management procedures.

Customers who choose the 6-Month Release schedule will receive a "sandbox account" that they can use for testing.

Here is what the release schedule looks like for an entire year:

  • Month 1 - The sandbox account is updated to be on the latest version of Limble. This is the same version that is currently on the Continuous Release schedule. Limble provides testing results from their internal validation to 21 CFR Part 11. The customer will have the entire month to test the new version of the software and create corresponding reports.

  • Month 2 - The customer's primary-use account is updated to the same Limble version as the sandbox account.

    • Keep in mind that from Month 2 to Month 7 Limble will not be changed or improved in any way.

  • Month 6 - The sandbox account is updated to be on the latest version of Limble. This is the same version that is currently on the Continuous Release schedule. Limble provides testing results from their internal validation to 21 CFR Part 11. The customer will have the entire month to test the new version of the software and create corresponding reports.

  • Month 7 - The customer's primary-use account is updated to the same Limble version as the sandbox account.

    • Keep in mind that from Month 8 to Month 13 Limble will not be changed or improved in any way.
