    Since this is a major release, the CWS code tables will be refreshed.  As long as users are logging into the CWS Application regularly, this code table refresh will not impact counties.  This will impact newly imaged machines that will receive the newer code table.  Dedicated counties do not need to take any action. Further Information relating to this release will be available 30 days prior to the release. 

    The new code tables need to be replicated to county servers.  Counties should already have a process in place that updates county workstations from county servers.  These files are to be delivered to the workstations only if the code tables are newer than what the workstations already have.
