Details

Note : Starting April 2017, Agile PLM (A9) will ship code fixes through RUPs (Release Update Packs) on Agile PLM release versions 9.3.5 and 9.3.6 instead of limited availability one-off patches.

 

Why are we introducing Release Update Pack releases?

The objective is to ensure an easier patch application process and overall better software quality. Agile PLM 9.3.5 and 9.3.6 customers will now be able to plan and install RUPs on a regular basis to take advantage of the latest identified issues and no longer having to wait for our annually scheduled release.

The benefits to our customers are the following:


What is a Release Update Pack release?

A Release Update Pack will be a single consolidated patch consisting of a collection of defect fixes. The release includes any critical client one-off patches delivered since the previous release or RUP and fixed issues targeted specifically for the RUP. All RUPs are cumulative and will include those fixes provided in earlier RUPs. Release Update Packs will exclude database changes, data migration, and, with only approved exceptions, enhancements. RUPs will be released like a patch and available for download on My Oracle Support.

What are the current Release Update Packs?

Note : The last 9.3.5 RUP is 9.3.5.9. Any further fixes reported for Agile 9.3.5 will be merged to Agile 9.3.6 RUP. Agile 9.3.5 users are encouraged to upgrade to latest Agile 9.3.6.

 

What documentation will clients receive with a Release Update Pack release?

Fixes delivered in a RUP will be documented in the RUP readme.

How does this affect our clients?

By moving to regular RUP releases, Agile PLM customers will now have greater visibility into bugs being fixed within a RUP release versus custom one-off customer fixes which were then later rolled into annual releases.

 

 

Note:

Hot Fixes (one-off patches) will be approved for true Production down situations only.

Defects resolved in Agile version 9.3.6 will not be back-ported to any earlier version.

Any defect reported in earlier versions will be fixed in Agile 9.3.6 only. Upgrade to version 9.3.6 is recommended.
