You may be wondering about the ‘Atateken’ naming convention and why we are using it. To satisfy customer requirements, our wonderful development team, based in Montreal, frequently releases new VIZOR builds to customers. Periodically we group these builds into a formal release. The ‘Atateken’ is a good example. This release consolidates enhancements delivered in builds 309 through 311. In a nod to our R&D team, VIZOR releases are named after streets and landmarks in Montreal. ‘Atateken’, a Mohawk word meaning brotherhood, sisterhood, and equality, is the name of one of Montreal’s newest streets following a renaming ceremony last year. Given the significance of the name in Montreal and wonderful meaning, we proudly adopted ‘Atateken’ for our first formal release of the decade.
