Check out the latest RTI blog post for more information about what's new in Connext 7.1 and how it will ease your system development. 


Connext 7.1 is the second of a three-part feature release series. Our release model includes a Long-Term Support (LTS) release that will follow these feature releases. Our previous feature release, Connext 7.0 EAR, will be removed from the download portal by the end of May 2023 as it reaches its End-Of-Life. While Connext 7.1 is a feature release, it will only be maintained and supported until the next feature release. Therefore, it's not recommended for production use. For customers who are in or near production or commercial release of their Connext-based solutions, the best version is Connext 6.1 LTS (6.1.2).


The following resources provide more information on the new features:

Download Connext 7.1 from the RTI Support Portal and try the features yourself.
