SIMULIA Established Products 2020 GA Release Notes
This distribution contains the SIMULIA Established Products 2020 General Availability release from SIMULIA. It has undergone the extensive testing defined in the QA plan for the general Abaqus release and has attained the level of quality of a general Abaqus release.
Abaqus: Please read the "Established Products Installation and Configuration" section in the Simulia Installation Guide before starting the installation.
Isight / SEE:Isight and SEE customers receive the same release package. The release package consists of installation files. The installer program allows the installer to select which parts of the software to install, either Isight desktop, SIMULIA Execution Engine, or SIMULIA Execution Engine Station. Please read the "Starting the Suite Installer" section in the Simulia Installation Guide before starting the installation. The internal version number of this Isight/SEE release is "5.20.1". Until 5.9 the internal version number closely matched with user visible version number e.g. 5.9-3 release had an internal version number of "5.9.3". Because of the name change begining with Isight 2016, this will no longer be the case.
TOSCA: This release contains TOSCA Structure and TOSCA Fluid. Please read the "Established Products Installation and Configuration" section in the Simulia Installation Guide before starting the installation.
fe-safe:This release contains fe-safe. This version of fe-safe is paired with the Abaqus 2020 release. Please read the "Established Products Installation and Configuration" section in the Simulia Installation Guide.
