A new version of Asgard (Desktop and AsgardMobile) is published approximately every 6 weeks. Emergent updates for critical issues, such as bugs or workflow impediments, may be published off-cycle.
On Publish night, Asgard is inaccessible during the maintenance window, which is typically 1 hour starting at 9 p.m. PST. Maintenance events are announced in advance, typically at 2 weeks, 1 week, and 8 hours prior to the event.
An announcement is posted in the Katana News window on the Welcome Page, an email is sent to all site leadership teams, and an alert appears upon login on the day of the update, to alert users to the planned maintenance.
Immediately following the software update, Asgard will automatically download the newest version when a user launches the application.
A document outlining the changes and new features available in the latest version of Asgard is distributed in the Publish notifications, as well as in the Katana News section of the Welcome Page.
