Recommendations for new users:

Recommendations for existing users:

Existing users should plan to upgrade to UD6 2.1.05 as soon as possible. If you anticipate migrating after June 2004 then you should use UD6 1.3.15 or later until you are able to migrate to 2.1.05.

UD6 2.1 has different default settings than UD6 1.03 so it may be necessary to alter the USYS$UD6_PARAMS in your ASN file to ensure that UD6 2.1 behaves similar to UD6 1.03. Refer to the ASN Settings for Upgrading for details.

If you are using the UD6 Option Pack and intend to use the MAKE / Buld Management features then it will be necessary to check out all forms and compile them to create the initial Makefile. You can use the USYS$UD6_PARAMS=makefiles setting to specify various options.

Migration for users of UD6 1.02 and UD6 1.03 Beta 1, 2 and 3:
