GoldMine Premium Edition sees it’s fifth patch, version 8.5.2 (aka

This is the sixth patch since the initial release of GoldMine Premium Edition (8.0) and the third one in the 8.5 line. It’s also very likely to be the final 8.x patch we’ll see before the release of version 9.0 in the spring of 2010.

The main goal of this patch was to clean up lingering issues primarily in the Opportunity/Project and E-mail areas of 8.5 There are some nice tweaks to the Universal Search area and general stability too.

From the Release notes included with 8.5.2:


The Opportunity Manager and Project Manager provide a filter that lets users select opportunities or projects by Status. To use this filter, click on the dropdown arrow next to the “Show:” label and select the corresponding Status. To view all opportunities or projects that are not completed, select “Active” in the dropdown menu. This is a new option in GoldMine Premium Edition 8.5.2..
