ez2view v8 to be switched off around Friday 17th December 2021

On 1st October 2021 we have transitioned to Five Minute Settlement (5MS):

1)   Initially with ez2view v9.0 in July 2021.

2)  Then with ez2view v9.1 in September 2021 (for a major enhancement in bid analysis capability); and

3)  Subsequently with ez2view v9.2 on 5th October 2021.

On Sunday 24th October 2021 the Wholesale Demand Response Mechanism (WDRM) commenced – following from which we have released ez2view v9.3 today (LINK TO COME):

1)   to provide visibility of Negawatts, when they start to emerge in the central dispatch process.

2)  there are other enhancements and bug fixes included, as well.

Given that it’s now 5 months since the release of version 9.0 (i.e. the first 5MS-compatible version of ez2view) we don’t see any further need to support any permutation of version 8, and so will be switching all copies of version 8 off prior to Christmas 2021.
