The OpenFin Runtime Version Manager (RVM) is a lightweight background process that runs alongside the OpenFin Runtime to manage updates, lifecycle, and security for all OpenFin applications on a given desktop.

The RVM is evergreen, which means it always remains functional throughout any instance of an update to itself or to the Runtime. Before the release of a new RVM version, OpenFin conducts beta and full end-to-end integration testing.
