BETA LM v6.4 has been released.
━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━
New features [BETA_LM_v6.4]
━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━
The following bug is revised in this version.
A loss in communication between License Server and clients has been 
noticed in some rare cases, especially when all the license credits are in use.
As a result, it was possible that some of the already running BETA CAE
Systems applications, were forced to finish.
In beta_lm_v6.4 several performance fixes have been implemented in order
to enforce the uninterrupted communication between the License Server and
the clients.The new version is compatible with all the previous BETA CAE 
Systems applications.However, the improved performance is even more 
obvious by using BETA CAE Systems versions released after 14th September
2015 (i.e. v15.3.2, v16.0.1, etc).

Regarding the details of the bugfix,please refer to following release note.
