The Dekho 4.1 training course is underway today in Brisbane.
Testimonial from previous learner:
“I really enjoyed the training and learnt a heap of things I didn’t know about Dekho. Hope to have 4.1 installed real soon.” — J.Tasker

Dekho 4.1.8 release is imminent (*) and will contain the following features & improvements:
One new feature of Dekho 4.1 is the ability to easily include a secure WMS. The Dekho server acts as a proxy and fetches the WMS map on behalf of the client.
A lot of customers have asked me how can they add their Corporate Logo in the Dekho Client. So, I thought of doing a step by step blog to achieve this.
A patch fix has been released to resolve an SQL script issue in the Product Upgrade Tool (which was released with the Dekho 4.1.7 package).
If you are affected, please download the Product Upgrade Tool.
The latest Dekho 4.1.7 package has now been amended; feel free to download it from http://www.esriaustralia.com.au/dekho-download-page .
Esri Australia is now offering a new training course for GIS administrators wanting to use Dekho 4.1. This two-day course teaches how to successfully install, configure and manage your Dekho web-maps.

|Following the release of Dekho V4.1.7 [ link ], a new InstaLink V1.0.3 has been released on Friday and it contains a number of new features.
The MDS IP address of the arcservices.mdsgeoplace.com server was changed Friday night (19 Sept 2014).
Depending on the version of Dekho, when the MDSFoundationMap (MapServer) is not available Dekho can be unusable for an organisation.
- Issue: Some organisations have their network or a subnet configured to allow MDSFoundationMap access via only a fixed IP address.
- Resolution: Check your firewall/network and make sure the IP 220.127.116.11 is allowed to get through. [ Note: While the Public DNS name arcservices.mdsgeoplace.com currently resolves to the IP address 18.104.22.168, this may change and it is better for customers not to rely on this IP when configuring their network communications]
- How to test: Use a browser and go to http://arcservices.mdsgeoplace.com/mds/rest/services then try http://22.214.171.124/mds/rest/services
- Get notified: If you would like to be automatically notified of MDS changes (possibly) affecting your system, please register here:

As you are probably aware, Dekho 4.1 does not rely on ArcMap configuration MXD files. Instead, the map templates are created and assembled within Dekho Admin GUI. You can consume Map services and WMS and this blog post explains one method to consume secure map services in your Dekho 4.1 template.
A few customers have deployed Dekho 4.1 in their DEV environment and ran into compatibility issues. Here is a list of the required modules for Dekho 4.1 and InstaLink.
