|OAKS Secure Browser 6.0 for 2012-13|
The updated Windows, Mac, and Linux Secure Browsers for 2012-2013 have been available for download from the OAKS Online portal since early July. Hundreds of downloads have already occurred with no reported problems. The updated Secure Browser must be installed on each computer that will be used for OAKS Online testing during 2012-2013. To avoid having multiple browsers present on the desktop, ODE recommends uninstalling last year's browser prior to installing the new 2012-13 OAKS Secure Browser.
Microsoft and Apple expect to release new operating systems (Windows 8 and OS 10.8, respectively) later this year. To provide time for thorough testing to ensure compatibility with the OAKS Secure Browser and test delivery system, it is ODE’s policy not to support new operating systems that are published after May 1 until a full school year later. Consistent with this policy, Windows 8 and Mac 10.8 are scheduled for support starting in 2013-14. For a full list of operating systems supported for 2012-13, please see the 2012-13 End of Support Plan .
