Yesterday, Flexera Software released a new version of InstallShield, called "InstallShield 2012 Spring".
New features include Microsoft SQL Azure™ database scripting capabilities, automatic update check during installation, new end user interface option for the Professional edition and an improved wizard page editor for Premier and Professional. Also included is pre-release support for Microsoft® Windows® 8, Windows Server® 2012 and Visual Studio™ 11.
In addition, owners of InstallShield Premier with an active maintenance plan are entitled to a FlexNet Connect account (limited to 1000 end points) that can be used to notify end users about available updates (similar to Windows Update).
InstallShield 2012 Spring is a new major version (version 19 internally) and therefore is a paid upgrade unless you have a maintenance plan.
InstallShield 2010 End of Life
At the same time, Flexera Software announced the end of life of InstallShield 2010. Upgrade pricing from this version ends on 31st August 2012.
