The IBM Software Distribution team is pleased to announce the coming 
release of Software Distribution 6.0 next week.

New Features

Support for the installation of PKG files on Solaris

Self Service Portal (SSP) support for AIX and Solaris: The SSP can now add 
and remove computers with AIX and Solaris operating systems and the SSP 
Registration Management Dashboard can block users from these machines

SSP Registration Management Dashboard Enhancements allow computers to be 
searched, sorted, and paginated in scroll view for enhanced dashboard 

SWD tasks with SPB files support variable templating which enables the 
creation of customizable tasks

SWD tasks can now specify a custom file path location to download and run 
files instead of the default location (.../__BESData/actionsite/)

Actions to Take Now

You will need to update the Self Service Portal and the Trusted Services 
Provider list. While SWD and MDM both utilize the SSP and TSP features, 
the changes made are only relevant for SWD.
