We held out as long as we could, but the time has finally come. As we previously warned, the 1.x version of FATpick is no longer supported.
In order for all of us - both the FATpick team and you, the "end-user" - to take full advantage of the capabilities of the second generation platform we can no longer contiue to support the legacy version. We have blocked these old clients from accessing the FATpick cloud and shut-down the services that (only) they depended on.
When you run any version of FATpick older than v2.3 you will now see an "Upgrade Required" message, prompting you to download and install the most recent version of FATpick.
Based on usage metrics few if any users will notice or be impacted by this change, but if you happen launch an old client, this would explain why you're no longer able to use that version of the app.
Forutnately, upgrading FATpick is quick and painless. Simply go to fatpick.com/get, donwload the latest installer for Windows, MacOS or Linux, and run it to update to the latest version of the app. It only takes a couple of minutes to complete the entire process.
And if you've been using an older version of FATpick all this time, you'll be pleasantly surprised by how much better the experience has become in the latest version of the app. The gen-2 series represents a radical improvement over the legacy app, in virtually every dimension. The changes are too numerous to mention here, but some of the highlights are called out in the change log for the gen-2 releases - v2.0, v2.1, v2.1.2, v2.2, v2.3, v2.3.2, v2.3.3, and v2.4 - and that's just what we've deployed so far. There's a new version of FATpick every two weeks, on average, so by the time you read this it's likely we'll have deployed even more upgrades.
