  1. Hi. We use Wiki as an Intranet at Aalto PRO. We have a slightly modified Aalto Intranet theme and one important macro Vintage link in use. How long a break we should expect please?

    1. Hi. The service brake for the update should be about 4 to 6 hours max. The Vintage link macro will work as usual after the update.
