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.
