it's common that vendor always announces release before the shipment.
We have evaluated the last beta of 9.0 months ago,and I belive 9.0 will ship to customer in Autum.
Believe me, HyperLynx 9.0 hasn't disappeared. In fact, just this past month we released a 4th Beta release. As you may or may not know, HL 9.0 is a very large release with major functionality changes. Releases with this much content require substantial QA efforts including addressing issues raised during the Beta periods.
Here is a short list of what's in HL 9.0
We are in the middle of "all-hands" testing and should release within the next month or so... not "autumn" as Yanfeng suggested.
Hello Oscar and All,
The HyperLynx version 9.0 download can be found here (choose the download based on your layout tool):
The technote "Using the New Features in HyperLynx 9.0" is here:
Just curious, how did you find out in May that there was a 9.0 in the works?
Hi David, you can get the what-be-next release on the supportnet.
I visit supportnet (and this forum) periodically and it seems that new code is advertized only after formal release. That is why I was asking.
Yanfeng is referring to the list of 'PCB Planned Releases' on SupportNet, http://supportnet.mentor.com/news/bsd_planned_releases.cfm. Although the list does not represent a guarantee of upcoming content, it does give you a good idea of the things we're working on.
Our goal in providing the list is to help you plan for the adoption of upcoming functionality and to reaffirm your choice of Mentor Graphics as your EDA provider.
