Coveo for Sitecore 3.0 - Release Notes

This topic summarizes the new features and fixed support cases included in each Coveo for Sitecore monthly release.

Prior to March 2016, the Coveo for Sitecore 3.0 updates followed a monthly release. They now follow a quarterly release cycle (see About the Coveo Platform Release Cycle).

Note: Starting from September 2016, the Coveo for Sitecore 3.0 release notes are available from the Coveo Developers website (see Coveo for Sitecore 3.0 - Release Notes).

Important: When you install or upgrade Coveo for Sitecore with a given monthly release, you must also upgrade Coveo Enterprise Search (CES) to the release of the same month to prevent compatibility issues (see Coveo Enterprise Search 7.0 - Release Notes).
