ANSYS, Inc. announced the release of ANSYS R16.2 today. It is available for download for current customers.
The release is a complete installation of the ANSYS Software Suite with some enhancements in products such as AIM, ANSYS Composite PrepPost, and FLUENT but it is primarily a bug fix to the software. One of the more important bug fixes is to the license manager. From the Release Notes:
· It is not necessary to upgrade the ANSYS License Manager at release 16.2. The 16.2 products will work with the 16.0, 16.1 or 16.1 LM1 License Manager. However, the 16.2 version of the ANSYS License Manager was upgraded to FlexNet version 126.96.36.199 to correct the following issues. We do recommend you upgrade if you are encountering either issue:
· The version of FlexNet (11.12.x.x) used in the ANSYS 16.0 License Manager contained a defect whereby if you have more than two INCREMENT lines (in your license file) for the same license feature, these licenses were not getting pooled correctly, meaning that you would not be able to utilize all of the licenses to which you are entitled.
· The version of FlexNet (11.12.x.x) used in the ANSYS 16.0 License Manager contained a memory leak defect which caused the license server to to utilize an increased amount of memory.
