What's new in 6.5.6?

Created: 05 Jan 2012 | 1 comment

I'm currently running 6.5.5.255, I see 6.5.6.268 is available.

I can't find a list of what's new, is it worth upgrading?

Any magor changes or bugfixes, any new bugs?

Thanks.

Hi Relentim,

There is a list of fixed issues in the following article:

Specifically:

Resolved Issues

6.5.6 -- Build 6.5.6.268

That last one is a key reason to upgrade to 6.5.6.  Earlier releases of SMSMSE were vulnerable to "Multi-Vendor Autonomy Verity Keyview Filter Multiple Issues" --- see http://www.symantec.com/business/security_response/securityupdates/detail.jsp?fid=security_advisory&pvid=security_advisory&year=2011&suid=20111006_00 for details!

Please update this forum with any additional questions, or feel free to mark it "solved" for the benefit of future visitors. &: )

With thanks and best regards,

Mick
