EndNote X8 will be released November 8, 2016. Here is some helpful information:
If you have EndNote on your Walter Reed networked computer or government issued laptop, you will NOT be able to update from EndNote X7 to EndNote X8 in the near future. The updated software needs to be reviewed/approved by information assurance personnel.
If you have EndNote on your home computer or personal laptop, you WILL be able to update from X7 to X8. Email Ann Holman, and she will can send you information on updating during the week of November 14.
EndNote X8 is backwards compatible going back to 2004, so if you have X8 on your home machine and X7 on your work machine, they should work together (aside from the firewall/syncing issue).
Bear in mind, we don't lose access to EndNote X7. If you're happy with it, you can continue to use it. For brief information about EndNote X8, click here.
