Meaning of ''EV'' in the M-Files installation package.
Posted by Andrzej Cholewa (M-Files) on 17 December 2018 01:03 PM

It may come to a misunderstanding with newly released M-Files updates.

From the filename description, it may appear that '"EV" in the filename stands for "Evaluation" and that the newest release is for testing purposes.

(i.e M-Files_Online_x64_ara_18_12_7171_0_EV.msi)

The situation is actually the opposite.

Installation Package includes letters EV which refer to Extended Validation (EV) Code Signing Certificate.

What this means in practice - the package you are downloading has undergone extensive testing in order to ensure it is fully operational and secure. This way we can provide our customers with the best software available.
