6.0.20 Released

(imported topic written by BenKus)

BES is now available!

BES not only includes a number of fixes for small issues, but this new version contains significant performance enhancements for the BES Console and BES Web Reports. The main changes include several memory usage optimizations that use more memory-efficient data structures, compression, and related enhancements. The result is that there is reduced database locking between multiple console users and significantly reduced memory usage (up to 60% in some deployments with many computers and many actions).

All BES components are fully forward and backward compatible with the previous 6.0.x components. Additional information about the update is available at the bottom of the page at http://support.bigfix.com/bes/changes/fullchangelist-6.0.txt http://support.bigfix.com/bes/changes/fullchangelist-6.0.txt .

This upgrade is available to all BES customers at no charge. As with all BES upgrades, you can upgrade any component manually or by using Fixlet messages available on the BES Support Fixlet site. You will see upgrade Fixlet messages for each BES component that is not yet upgraded. If you are currently running BES 6.0, you can upgrade any or all of the components in any order. For those customers at BES 5.1 or earlier, the upgrade pathway remains the same and you should upgrade to BES whenever possible to take advantage of the newest features, optimizations, and bug fixes.
