User configuration of retry timeout and number of retries
Import chunk sizes can now be configured for between 1 and 50MB
Improved screen logging, including timestamp, classpath for debug lines, Linux process ID, and more
JDBCparameters are now within the “properties” file, allowing for easier querying and enhanced security
AC 1.4.1 has been fully tested and is successfully operational on Linux and Windows machines running Oracle Java 11 with some slight adjustments to the AnaplanClient file

What do I need to do?
As previously mentioned, Anaplan are recommending customers upgrade to AC 1.4 (or later) by the end of 2019. Anaplan Connect 1.4.x does not replace any existing installations so it can be installed concurrently on a different directory and the usability of the application and stability of the integration points can be thoroughly regression tested prior to further roll-out.
