Lion and Middlebury

Apple Inc. released their latest version of Mac OS X last week, version 10.7, otherwise known as Lion.  There are lots of new features in Lion and a clear influence from Apple’s iOS.

Middlebury will not be moving immediately to Lion, rather we will be staying at version 10.6 for the 2011-2012 school year.  Compatibility issues of older machines and applications is the main reason for not jumping immediately to the new OS.  LIS will be conducting system testing over the course of the academic year and deployment is planned for the Summer of 2012.  Not rushing into deploying the new OS will give Lion time to mature as an operating system, working out any bugs or “features” that may effect Middlebury.

Network upgrade in Athletics complex this Sunday morning

This coming Sunday morning, during the regular maintenance downtime period from 8:00 am to 10:00 am, we will be upgrading network infrastructure equipment throughout the Athletics complex (including the faculty offices, fitness center, natatorium, football stadium,  and rink).  Network service will be interrupted in various locations throughout the complex of buildings as we replace equipment.   All services should be restored by 10:00am.   The rest of campus should not be affected.
