Here’s a short summary of SPRs and enhancements added to the product release. Many SPRs and enhancements are part of the release. We highly recommend you log in to the support site and read the release notes. If you have an active maintenance contract you can download the new version from the PTC-Support website as usual. If you need any help please contact our support team.


Note, also, that with the 6.0 release, Unix platforms are no longer supported but IPv6 is.

The big fix here should be the update to the Java VM as 6.0. F000 came out just before a major bug was reported and fixed in Java. I can't tell whether this is fixed in this release or not. I'll update when I have better information.
