Product Notes

  • You need to use this Serial Number for this build: HDZSTND-025-0000006-DAA-001-EBTNWLR (Expires 08-Jun-2011)
  • Release version and the 2.5.1.X beta should not be installed on the same machine. This could negatively impact those who use Hexagon in a production environment.
  • The development team has updated the code base and fixed over 225 bugs. Over half of those were Crash bugs. We would like your input on this build. However, this is a beta release and we are not finished. We know there are still a few more issues to be polished off. There are some new bugs that weren't in the previous build. Please review and report issues in the bug tracker.
