In 2018, Microsoft started its App Assure initiative (applications will work on Windows 10, and if they do not — Microsoft engineers will help find a solution). Microsoft claims that application compatibility remains a core tenet of their planning and development process. According to Microsoft, this application compatibility promise applies to Windows 11. To double-check whether your application works as expected on Windows 11, please review the following official testing routine: Testing Guidelines. Adapt2 has ensued & approved the testing guidelines with no outstanding issues. In case you run into any issues, please feel free to contact support for further troubleshoot any issues.
CAISO Hybrid Resources Phase 2B
As part of the CAISO Hybrid Resources project California ISO (CAISO) has implemented an aggregated capability constraint for Hybrid Resources. Hybrid resources are multiple resources of different technologies that share a common point of interconnection and are modeled as one resource. Due to this change, there are now limited to hybrid dynamic limit functionality and changes to various applications, reports, and displays. This will not have any impact on the Adapt2 client base in regards to their Adapt2 B2B operations.

PJM has Retired eDART TLS 1.0 and TLS 1.1 Protocols
Transport Layer Security (TLS) is the most widely deployed security protocol that encrypts data transmitted between two endpoints, most commonly when loading websites over HTTPS. Over time, new attacks against TLS and the encryption algorithms it uses have been discovered. To ensure better cybersecurity, as of August 1st, PJM has retired the eDART TLS 1.0 and 1.1 protocols and weak ciphers in TLS 1.2. Any PJM market participant accessing eDART or eDART giles on pjm.com via the web browser have been affected by this change. The latest versions of web browsers, such as Microsoft Edge, Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox and Apple Safari, have TLS 1.2 enabled by default. If you are using an older or different web browser, please visit Microsoft Word - Weak Encryption Remediation Guide.dotx (pjm.com) to learn how to mitigate this change. Adapt2 has taken the necessary steps to ensure this change has no impact to our clients.
