The IBM Endpoint Manager for Software Use Analysis team is pleased to
announce the release of software catalog updates for SUA 1.3.x and 2.x.
The major changes included in this update are shown below. Please review
the change lists included in the SUA fixlet description for all details on

Note that the software catalog update for SUA 9.x has not yet been
released. It should be available no later than Monday Jan 27, 2014.

Catalog 37

In SUA 2.x and 9.x, this catalog is identified by it's version: 1146169
In SUA 1.3, this catalog is identified by it's timestamp: 2014-01-07
   ·	Additions for Microsoft Visual Studio 2013 Editions.
   ·	Multiple updates for other software titles.

Catalog 36

   ·	Additions for Microsoft 2013 Office Suites.
   ·	Multiple updates for minor software titles.

Catalog 35

   ·	All versions of Microsoft Windows 8.1 have been added to the catalog.
   ·	Some missing versions of Adobe Flash Player were added to the

Catalog 34

Major updates were made to enable detection of multiple Windows versions as
well as versions of Microsoft SQL Server in SUA 2.x. Note that these
changes have not only required catalog changes but changes in Analyses for
SUA 1.x and 2.x. The "Installed Windows Applications" Analysis (SUA 2.x)
and "Installed Application Information (Windows)" Analysis (SUA 1.x) are
being updated for Catalog 34.

For previous catalog versions, the updates to these Analyses may cause
Microsoft SQL Server and Microsoft Windows to stop being detected in SUA
1.x. That effect is caused by the updated Analyses generating new values
for properties which are used to match signature entries in the software
catalog. Updating the catalog will enable the detection of that software
again. Detection of other software titles is not affected.

If you still need the previous versions of the Analyses mentioned above to
support custom content, please contact IBM Support for assistance.
