2013Q4.0 Release Notes

We are pleased to present our 2013Q4.0 release. The main features of this release are:

  • Use of reference data in parsing (US only)
  • Install Manager improvements including Pause & Resume, Silent Install
  • Improved data for New Zealand
  • Point level geocoding for Bosnia and Herzegovina
  • CASS Certification
  • SERP Compliance
  • Transliteration improvements

Check out our 2013Q4.0 Release Webinar held on October 17th, 2013:

In this video, Loqate CTO Paul Flew the Development Team take the time to discuss the new features of the Q4 release which include improvements to Install Manager and CASS and SERP Certification. We also discuss the ongoing improvements to our documentation available on our Support site.

This document describes these changes in greater detail along with things to be aware of and other helpful tips.

 

General Suggestions and Tips

For the best results, install the 2013Q4.0 release as soon as your application development cycle allows. The 2013Q4.0 release makes improvements in both throughput of the verification process but also in the quality of the results.

Please remember to update both the program files and the reference data. The improvements in the Loqate Engine are tied to the data in the Global Knowledge Repository and the combination works better. If a reason exists in your application that both cannot be updated, please contact Loqate Support prior to upgrading so we can help you.
