This release announcement has been published to

The BigFix Inventory team is pleased to announce the extension of discovery
capabilities for BigFix Inventory 9.x.

What's new

      Software classification capability for new releases of IBM software
      products as described in the ILMT Catalog Release Notes.
      Multiple updates and additions for non-IBM software products as
      described in the change list.

For details of the changes, you can also see the description of the
Software Catalog Update fixlet.

Enabling the new discovery capabilities

1. Upgrade the BigFix Inventory server to version 9.2.9. For detailed
instructions, see: Upgrading to BigFix Inventory 9.2.9.
Upgrading the server is required due to the following reasons:
- Problems with catalog import that occurred in versions 9.2.6 to 9.2.8.
For more information, see the technote.
- Lack of support for the software catalog in the canoncial 3.0 format in
versions earlier than 9.2.5.
2. Upload the software catalog to BigFix Inventory. To download the
catalog, run the Software Catalog Update fixlet. Then, upload it to BigFix
Inventory. For detailed instructions, see: Downloading the software catalog
