StorMan v8 Release Information

Every year or so, we release a major new software update which literally contains hundreds of new features & bug fixes. This year, our flagship version 8 release is no different - with each and every screen recoloured & redesigned, as well as stacks & stacks of new features for you play with (including many features that some of you have asked us for!).

As this version includes a number of important changes, we have created a series of resources to help you smoothly transition to the new version. To find out more, please peruse our various sections below. Should you have any questions or comments about our v8 release, please get in touch with your nearest StorMan office.
