Yes, the schematic update flow is being introduced into the DxDesigner - PADS flow through I/O Designer in the next PADS release. We are working through testing now. If the testing process confirms a high quality implementation we should be set... If we discover any challenges with the quality of the implementation we will delay the introduction of the schematic update process (It makes no sense to release new functionality if we have quality issues).
We will keep this thread updated as we work toward the release date.
