This section lists what is new for the HP-UX Software Assistant revision C.01.04, March, 2008.

  • Added support for customer-managed inventory files.

  • Recalculated date for leap years (QXCR1000760488).

  • Obsolescence of security_patch_check.

    In order to eliminate redundant tools and simplify customer environments, HP is obsoleting the security_patch_check(1M) tool in 2009. The Software Assistant utility and its corresponding catalog replace and expand the capabilities provided by security_patch_check.

    The March 2008 release of security_patch_check will initially use its corresponding security_catalog and provide full legacy support. On November 1st, 2008, this version of security_patch_check will begin invoking Software Assistant. The command security_patch_check -m will continue to support the old report format by invoking an equivalent swa-report(1M) command.

    On a date after November 1st, 2008, the catalog file required for older versions of security_patch_check will no longer be available. All users should plan on converting to swa(1M) before the November 1st, 2008 date.

  • Improved HP-UX Software Assistant Administration Guide.

  • Improved manpages.

  • Updated the SWA web pages on the HP Software Depot at https://www.hp.com/go/swa.
