Why does it takes months to support new operating systems ?

Apple OSX Mountain Lion (released 25 july) is still waiting for a new version....

Great question! I fail to understand why the expected agility is not there for this product.

Hello,

The Release is due anytime this year. There is no official date for the Release of SEP 12.1 RU2.

Check this Comment from Michael Marfise, Director, Symantec Endpoint Protection.

"Our next release is currently in beta and we are targeting for general availability later this year with the specific release date being determined by achievement of our quality criteria. We do not have a specific date at this time."

I received an email from Symantec Beta program today(Nov. 12) saying that SEP 12.1.2 is out, but I called the Symantec support hotline and was told that it has not been released yet. I then checked fileconnect, not out yet also.

Please note that the date of the 15th is for the English version. Localized versions to follow by (I think) the end of the month.

It is available for my clients with Small Business edition but not for the ones the SEP entreprise edition.

If they are localized (in other words, not English) versions or SEP (enterprise) was purchased as part of a suite--that could explain it. There's always a bit of an offset for localized versions and suites.
