SmarTeam has issued a hot fix for V5R17 SP8.
We have been looking forward to this Hot Fix, and it should fix the issue we reported on March 25th (The client server issue).
If you are an Inflow-Technology customer, please contact us for information. If you are not a customer, you should be!
All kidding aside (No seriously, you should be!), contact your local VAR for details.
