We are glad to announce that FieldWorks version 9.0.6 is being released. This version fixes a few critical issues with version 9.0.5.

As of release 9.0.4, TE and Db4o are no longer included with FLEx.

After upgrading to this version, the data will not open in any version prior to 9.0.4, so make a backup before upgrading. If you are sharing data with others, the entire team should use a version of FieldWorks with the same data model. For more specifics about version 9.0 and the changes made, see the beta release notes.
