The next update release is expected in October 2017.
Release Notes – May 30, 2017
Deploying PointFire 2013
Start ->PointFire 2013 ->PFConfig
Note: If you experience issues running the configuration tool from the shortcut, you can navigate to the PointFire directory and run PFConfig or one of the installation scripts directly.
Note: Deploying using the scripts requires additional configuration steps. Please see the install guide for detailed information.
Updating PointFire 2013
If you are updating an existing PointFire 2013 deployment, launch the PointFire Deployment Manager and follow through the upgrade process, or retract then re-deploy PointFire, or navigate to the installation directory to run the upgrade script.
Note: If configuration keys in the web.config files have been edited manually after PFConfig initially set them, using PFConfig to update the PointFire may erase or overwrite some of those keys. For safety, note the values of the keys currently in web.config prior to updating.
Upgrading from PointFire 2010
If you are upgrading from a PointFire 2010 deployment, please consult the PointFire 2010 v1.0 to 2013 v1.0 Upgrade Guide.
· Ability to translate custom refiner names. Please note that translations for custom refiner names should be put in the Multilingual Translations List in the site collection top level and not in the site where the search is carried out. Also note, this functionality works for the initial display of the refiner, but not yet for after a refiner is clicked. This will be extended in a later release.
