Twin launch - we have provided an update on our SAP MaxDB community edition software in the SCN download area. These packages may be used for free for your own or 3rd-party applications according to our community license. They must not be used along with SAP applications.
SAP MaxDB Version 7.6.06.03 is the next support package in the 7.6 lifecycle and aligns latest fixes, feature and performance enhancements.
SAP MaxDB Version 7.7.06.09 is the new version of the database that will come along with new SAP application development. We now provide it for non-SAP use as well.
Upgrade from recent versions (e.g. 7.6.05) to each of the new versions is smooth and fast if done with the SDBSETUP (GUI) or SDBUPD (cmdline) tool. They are - as always -part of the software packages.
Both SAP MaxDB versions are available for the platform set known, as there are Windows 32- and 64-bit, Linux 32- and 64-bit, AIX-PPC 64-bit, Solaris Sparc and x86, both 64-bit.
The packages are accompanied by the 7.7.06.09 version of our Database Studio, also with extended functionality. Database Studio download package is provided for Linux and Windows, both 32-bit versions.
