    Manually upgrading Zoomdata 4.1 or later no longer provides the Java Runtime Environment (JRE) needed for Zoomdata to start. Make sure you have Java 8 (1.8.0_131) or later installed before you manually install or manually upgrade to Zoomdata 4.1 or later. If you do not, Zoomdata will not start. See How Zoomdata Validates an Environment's Java Version.

Due to the upgrade of the HashiCorp Consul (service discovery) version from 0.7.5 to 1.2.2, custom connectors built before Zoomdata 3.2 ( built for versions 3.1 or earlier versions) will not appear in Zoomdata after you migrate to Zoomdata 3.7 or later. This is caused by incompatibilities between old connectors and the new Consul. To make your custom connectors compatible with Zoomdata 3.7 (and later versions), you must migrate them as described in Version 3.7 Custom Connector Migration Information.

This migration step is required only for custom connectors built with Zoomdata versions earlier than 3.2 or for connectors that were present before Zoomdata 3.2 but that are now deprecated (for example, the Hive on Tez connector, which was replaced by the Hive connector in Zoomdata 3.7).

Zoomdata version 3.2 and later versions use headless Google Chrome instead of Firefox for Zoomdata's Screenshot microservice. The Chrome-based Screenshot microservice cannot be installed in CentOS v6 environments because the Google Chrome dependencies do not support that platform. See Setting Up the Screenshot Microservice.
