Version 3.3.0.1818 (January 07, 2018)

  1. Added: Architectural changes that improve performance significantly .
    In order to fully exploit the performance possibilities brought by v.3.3, high-volume senders should request Support to check whether their account configuration is in line with their sending needs.

  2. Changed: There is no longer a need to split jobs into many small batches. It is recommended to split the entire job into four batches or multiples of 4 (4, 8, 16, etc).

  3. Changed: XES now uses Amazon’s native technology for tracking, resulting in enhanced performance. As a result, the wrapping of the link changes and the wrapping domain tracking.xmpxess.com is no longer used.
    If you want triggered emails to be affected by this, installation of the latest uProduce Email Plugin version is required. Contact Support for further information.
    If you decide not to upgrade, tracking and triggered emails will remain fully functional, however triggered emails will not benefit from enhanced performance.
