ActiveControl 9.00 was released in September 2022, this 9.00 release includes the first release of the new ActiveControl Web Platform.
The main objective of this new Web Platform is to modernise the UI and underlying technologies used within ActiveControl, and ultimately to replace (and retire) both the current ActiveControl Web UI and Windows GUI in the future. The following two Figures summarise some of the reasons and objectives of the new ActiveControl Web Platform:

ActiveControl 9.00 includes the Phase 1 of the new Web Platform. This is essentially a replacement for the current ActiveControl WebUI. Phase 2 of the new Web Platform will include all additional functionality currently only available in Windows GUI. This is expected to be available in the first half of 2023.
Although many of the core concepts of ActiveControl do not change as part of the Web Platform, it is not solely a lift and shift of existing functionality available in the current Windows GUI and WebUI. Many new Features and capabilities are being added as part of the new ActiveControl Web Platform. These Web Platform Release Notes are intended to give an overview of the main new (or enhanced) Features that existing Basis Technologies’ customers will not be familiar with in the current ActiveControl Windows GUI and WebUI. New ActiveControl customers with no prior experience of the tool would be better advised to review the Administration Guide and User Guide documentation.
