Notices about the latest updates to Metro’s Visual Alert software are published in alternate months in our email newsletter, UPDATE. Any critical updates are delivered immediately, as are updates requested by a client to address an emergency situation. If you are not receiving UPDATE, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Each edition of UPDATE includes a short summary of modifications or features added to the software as well as a link for clients to log in and download the update as wel as the accompanying release notes.
Release numbers for the software are found in the upper left-hand corner of the application. The format is three numbers separated by dots. The first number is the version of Visual Alert. That is followed by the update number or release number. The final number is the build. Example: Visual Alert 2.1.0 is version 2, release 1, and build 0.
