As of EdgeRater PRO Unleashed release version 22.214.171.124 there is a new way to download the latest templates for use in the program.
Prior to 126.96.36.199 the only way you could get new templates was to download and install a full program update even if there were no changes to the program. This made it more cumbersome to deploy templates and took longer for a user to receive a simple template update.
The New Way
Now in 188.8.131.52 and beyond templates are no longer deployed with the program update but can be downloaded by the user via a few new buttons in the interface. I will outline the process here with a few screen shots…
The first thing to notice is in the Templates menu bar there is a new group of controls called ‘Template Set’:
In the above screen shot you can see the templates version installed on your machine is listed under ‘My Version’ and is shown as 2014.4.
Also you can see that the latest available version is 2014.5 and because ‘My Version’ is not the latest version the ‘My Version’ is highlighted with a red background.
Whenever you see this situation you can press the ‘Get Latest Templates’ button which will let you download the new version:
Pressing the ‘Download and Install’ button will get the latest set of templates from the server and install them into the program.
After downloading and installing the templates the menu bar will let you know that you are up to date:
Even if you have the latest version of templates you can still download them again if you need to .
