Some of the enhancements to the Allegro Design Workbench (ADW) 16.5 release were introduced in the 16.3.1 release. The 16.5 version has expanded on these with an emphasis on increased performance.The main new enhancements are:
Read on for more details…The following provides a high-level flow of how the ADW server is accessed by various applications within ADW:
The speed improvements noted by several customers are significant in the 16.5 ADW release. What was taking several hours (large database uploads) in the past is now reduced to a few minutes! Part Table Generation (PTF Gen) has been reduced from 50 minutes to 2 minutes and 27 hours to 30 minutes with a couple of customer library examples. New Server Commands
A few commands are available to allow convenient server actions.

Thanks for sharing a so interesting topic.
The server technology was actually introduced with ADW16.3.1and over 75% of our customer have moved to that release. The adoption of ADW16.5 is somewhat predicated on the customer adoption of of the core SPB16.5 release.
What percentage of ADW customers have implemented ADW v16.5? Thanks!
