No... the message said that the service pack is basically done already and is "currently under final test and being qualified for release." It looks probable that we, as an Autodesk ASC, will receive SP1 on CD before it is available for download.

Think he said the code is pretty-much done and
their testing it, right? I'd say that might mean that they'll be testing it
until then unless they find a major problem, in which case, the date could slip.
That's the reason they don't reveal target dates; like everyone else I know,
their crystal balls are probably filled with smoke or maybe other
unmentionables similar to what seem to be in mine.

my
first thought was...how could they put a release date on a patch? shouldn't it
be released when the major bugs are fixed, instead of saying, "whatever is
fixed by nov 15th is when this SP will be released." ???

Re: Autodesk Responds to R6

Is it just a coincidence or has Autodesk planned
the SP release on the same day as the second Harry Potter move is
released

I
have been reading messages from some disgruntled R6 users (most notably, the
"Silence" thread) about Autodesk not owning up to issues with R6. Read below
the email I received today from Robert "Buzz" Kross from Autodesk.



All,

I have heard a number of issues from your customers concerning
Inventor 6 quality. Most of these issues have focused on drawing manager. My
team has met with a key members of our technical sales team and with customers
to define the scope of the problem. In response to this we are producing an
Inventor 6 service pack. The service pack will be available for download on
November 15. Code development work for the service pack is largely completed
and it is currently under final test and being qualified for release. Over 600
customer issues spanning the entire product have been resolved. I will forward
a separate detail list of fixes to MCAD TECH FAM later this week. Following is
a high level summary:


Parts

Around 90 issues have been
resolved that deal specifically with parts, most of the issues are priority 2
and 3. Memory leaks which lead to capacity issues have been fixed. Issues with
features failing to update which are dependent on loft, thicken and delete
face operations have been fixed. Some key Autodesk Shape Manager fixes have
also been incorporated including fixes for specific fillet and loft crashes. A
bug that limited emboss functionality has been removed.


Assemblies


In assemblies we have resolved around 80 issues, most having to do
with constraints. This includes several issues with transitional constraints
and adaptive assemblies. Limitations with constraining adaptive assemblies to
non-adaptive assemblies have been fixed. Certain iMate fixes have been
introduced. In addition, a large set of special weldment cases has been
resolved. Specifically, weld symbols jumping, failing fillet welds, issues
with creating welds have been fixed.


Drawings

Over 200
fixes for the service pack have been in drawings. Issues related to specific
migration problems, holes and hole tables, and performance and capacity for
view creation of very large assemblies have been fixed. Over 30 crashes have
been fixed. Some specific issues that have been resolved include:


  - Crash getting all dimensions from a derived part with a
pattern.

  - Crash after save when copy/paste a sheet with
projected view.

  - Crash when cursor crosses the section
arrow during section view creation.

  - Crash annotating to
some legacy section views.

  - Annotations do not stay
attached to view geometry on assembly update.

  - Weld
annotations not recovered in a specific drawing view.

  -
Assembly demote causes part list numbering to jump.

  -
Drawing cannot be opened after deleting a component from .ipn’s assembly.


  - Breakout view causes crosshatch to be wrong.



Other

A relatively small number of issues have been fixed
in Data Exchange, Content Library, API, Sheet Metal and Surfacing.




Best Regards,

-buzz

Good to hear, but I've got to wonder; how did this happen?
How many beta testers were there? A dozen?
Or, were all the issues known at shipping time?

jeff,

    Remember 5.3? Most had the
SP downloaded before the box was at the door.

Beta testing is a double edged sword. You never find the critical bugs
until you use it in a production environment - but - you never use beta in a
production environment because the files aren't guaranteed to work with the
released code.
