Note that to use dashboards embedded in AIP Console ≥ 1.12.x (see Installation process), CAST AIP ≥ 8.3.16 is required due to some structural changes introduced into the Analysis and Dashboard schemas. If you are not using embedded dashboards, then this constraint does not apply, however, CAST does recommend that you use the latest available releases where possible.
