Episerver - update 163

New releases of Episerver Commerce (including critical bug fixes) and Episerver A/B testing. Bug fixes for Episerver CMS Core (including critical bug fixes) and Episerver CMS UI; Episerver Forms Marketing Automation connector (including a critical bug fix); and the Episerver Pardot, HubSpot and Silverpop Marketing Automation connectors. Also, notice of removed support for SQL Server 2008 R2.

Note: From update 163, support for SQL Server 2008 R2 is removed. This means that we no longer test releases on this version, and future releases may use functionality in SQL Server 2012 and later. If you are running SQL Server 2008 R2 and want to keep Episerver up-to-date in the future, you should upgrade your database to a newer version.

The update applies to Episerver projects version 7.5 and higher, and contains finalized work items included in the latest iteration. Continuous release updates are cumulative to include previous updates. Episerver supports all platform updates and strongly recommends that you keep ongoing projects up-to-date. You can install the updates from the Episerver NuGet feed.

Main packages
This release information lists updated main package versions for the Episerver platform. When a release is built, other dependent packages also may be bumped to new versions, although they contain no publicly visible changes. This is done to avoid dependency errors. When you upgrade, NuGet alerts you to upgrade related packages to the required versions. For Commerce, it is important to ensure that you are running the same version of CMS and Commerce, both in the front-end and back-end applications.
