ArcGIS Enterprise 11

ArcGIS Enterprise 11.0 is here. Before you jump on the bandwagon, be aware that ArcGIS Enterprise 11.0 includes several retired and modified workflows. These architecture and application changes are likely to impact your environment when upgrading from an earlier version of the software. For example, the removal of the ArcMap-based runtime will prevent you from publishing map services using ArcMap. You will also need to convert ArcMap based services to ArcGIS Pro based services. You should consider 10.9.1 until you are ready for 11.

ArcGIS Pro 3.0

ArcGIS Pro 3.0 is here! Some things to know:

  • ArcGIS Pro 3.0 is a breaking change release. If you share project files or datasets with older versions of ArcGIS Pro, use project packages and document packages (instead of not collaborating with others).
  • Installing ArcGIS Pro 3.0 requires .NET 6 Desktop Runtime x64. Install the latest available version to avoid delays when Pro 3.0 is released. (Download site)
  • There are new Excel driver requirements. Review and adhere to the information in the 3.0 documentation.
  • If you run ArcGIS Pro on concurrent use licenses, be sure to first update to ArcGIS License Manager 2022.0 before updating to ArcGIS Pro 3.0.
