What's new in ArcPad 10.2.3

Key areas with improvement in ArcPad 10.2.3 are data capture, feature symbology and synchronization workflows.


ArcPad Data Manager

Creating a checkout using the ArcPad Data Manager no longer fails when connected to an enterprise geodatabase using a non-admin Windows authenticated owned version.

SHA-1 certificate support will be deprecated November 2016

Secured feature services and ArcPad Packages hosted in ArcGIS Online will continue to be available to users on devices that support SHA-2 certificates. This security type is available on Windows (XP, 7, 8.1, 10) and Windows Embedded HandHeld 6.5 devices that have been patched by the manufacturer. Devices with operating systems older than Windows Embedded HandHeld 6.5 cannot be patched. Devices that only support SHA-1 certificates, can only be supported by ArcGIS Online until November 2016 and will need to run ArcPad 10.2.3 as of December 2015.

This is an industry wide action to improve internet security. The following article describes Microsoft's position. https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/2986556. Esri has made contact with many hardware manufacturers who already provide, or are working on SHA-2 patches for Windows Embedded HandHeld 6.5 models. If you have questions about the availability of the SHA-2 patch for your Windows Embedded Handheld 6.5 device we encourage you to contact the manufacturer.
