RELEASE: 1.11.0

The DSim Cloud 1.11.0 focuses on providing a clearer view of the three way DSim can be used. This includes a tight integration in managing licenses for using DSim locally on your system. It includes enhanced functionality for the Desktop Interactive feature, allowing users to view live usage, manage DSim Desktop licenses, and automatically install DSim licenses.

You'll now find a view in DSim Cloud for each of the three ways you can use the DSim simulator.

Desktop Interactive: For using DSim on your local machine

Cloud Jobs: For running regressions in the cloud

Cloud Interactive: For using DSim with a dedicated cloud workspace.

This release coincides with the launch of the new help portal which includes an improved knowledge base. We're also launching a new community forum where Metrics support staff as well as the community of DSim users can ask and answer questions about the whole DSim product lineup.

Below is the complete list of features and bugs contained within the release.
