Starting with Deployment Solution (DS) 8.6 RU3, a User needs to download Linux GPL files independently.


For 8.6 RU3 and 8.7 GA - download

For 8.7.1 - Download

For 8.7.2 - Download

There will be no new 32-bit version for Deployment Solution (DS), because starting from ITMS 8.7 RTM only 64-bit Linux is supported.

NOTE Each product version can use only supported FRM version as in table below.

8.6 RU3/8.7 FRM build 11008
8.7.1 FRM build 11012
8.7.2 FRM build 11013
