Version Changes

Defined Changes In Each Version

A version (i.e., 8.014, etc.) contains bug fixes and sometimes added features. You can update to the latest version regardless of what release (i.e., Pipe2016, Pipe2014, Pipe2012, etc.) you are licensed for, and we recommend that users update when a new version becomes available, and before calling Technical Support, since updating may resolve the issue.

Each Version update is accompanied by a Change Description. In the descriptions, the term “critical fix” means any change which has the potential, however remote, to affect analysis results. The description includes information on specific scenario and simulation types where results may be affected.

1. Releases: some of the version-specific features described below are not available in earlier releases, click here to see a list of available features by release.

2. Interface: some features are available in the Kynetic Interface but not the Classic Interface, see our GUI Page. However, Classic users can switch back and forth between the two interfaces to take advantage of the available KYnetic features.

3. Packages: additional features are provided based on the subscription level, which is specific to the analysis engine. Click to see a description of features by package for KYpipe and GoFlow, Gas, Steam and SWMM, and Surge.
