 +===== Update images =====
 +
 +The [[maintenance:​downloads:​system_updates:​patch_install|patch installation guide]] will help you update your system.
 +
 +The YCE distribution images can be downloaded below:
 +
 +<WRAP indent>
 +^Download^Release type^Release notes^
 +| {{ :​downloads:​yce_7.0.5_20181203.bin |}} | General release | [[maintenance:​releases:​7.0.5_20181203|NetYCE 7.0.5 Build_20181203]] |

 +| {{ :​downloads:​yce_7.1.1_20191113.bin |}} | Preliminary build | [[maintenance:​releases:​active_build|NetYCE 7.1.1 Active_build]] ​ | 
 +</​WRAP>​
 +
 +> NetYCE installation images come in two forms, as a "​**General release**"​ or as a "​**Preliminary build**"​. Only the general releases are intended for production usage since they have been more fully tested. Please consult the [[maintenance:​general:​releases_brances|NetYCE development branches and releases]] page for an explanation of the distinctions.
 +
 +NetYCE is improving its product in short development and test cycles called '​sprints'​. A description of the items and issues that have been realized for the next upcoming cycle is available in the [[maintenance:​releases:​active_build|'​Active_build'​]] page. Updates to the Active build page are twice a week. Sprints are targeted at a two-week cycle.
 +
 +
 +The installation images can be installed using the YCE front-end as outlined below. These images can be used for upgrading dot-releases (e.g: 7.0 → 7.1) and for updating patchlevels (e.g: 7.1.0_20190110 → 7.1.0_20190216)
 +
 +These images contain a full distribution set of NetYCE. Incremental installations are not required.
 +
 +Major version upgrades require an installation guide and a NetYCE license file update. See the [[maintenance:​general:​upgrade_to_7_0|Upgrade procedure YCE 6.3 -> 7.0]] for details.
 +
 +===== Licenses =====
 +
 +The new license can be downloaded from the table below. The [[maintenance:​downloads:​system_updates:​license_install|installation instructions]] will help you install the license from the GUI or using the CLI.
 +
 +The Genesis (Free) license is used by the free netYCE version. ​
 +
 +<​WRAP>​
 +^License ^ Valid till ^ Version mask ^
 +|{{ :​downloads:​system_updates:​genesis_license.txt | Genesis (Free) License }} | 20300101 | 7.1.x |
 +</​WRAP>​
 +
 +===== Genesis database and ini files =====
 +
 +If you had already downloaded de genesis OVA in the past, you may choose to just update the database and possibly updated ini files. ​
 +
 +It is required that the patch level is higher than the database that is being loaded. If you have this warning, please make sure you have patched your system.
 +
 +Upload and restore the database in ''​Admin > System > DB archives''​.
 +> Your current information in the database will be overwritten,​ not merged.

 +===== Perl images =====
 +
 +The YCE perl distribution can be downloaded as well, but can only be installed from the Linux command line. Updating is ONLY required when upgrading a major-release (6.x → 7.x) or a dot-release (7.0 → 7.1) or feature updates if indicated.

 +^Yceperl ^ Mask ^ 
 +|{{:​downloads:​yceperl_7.0.2.bin|yceperl_7.0.2.bin}} | 7.0.2 |
 +</​WRAP>​
 +
 +Installation of the YCE perl distribution requires the file to be uploaded to the YCE server using the '​yce'​ functional user. Then, login as '​yce'​ and execute ''​sh yceperl_7.0.x.bin''​.
 +
 +__Note 1__: The YCE perl update must be installed BEFORE upgrading to a higher YCE dot-release. \\
 +__Note 2__: This version is already bundled in the Genesis OVA. \\
 +__Note 3__: YCEperl 7.0.2 contains some additional modules required for NetYCE version 7.0.2 and later. ​
