There have been a fair number of questions about when Solid Edge ST6 would be announced. I'm just getting on the distriburion lists around here, and although this news is a week old, some of you may not have heard yet. The following info comes from Fred White of support:
Solid Edge ST6 released to manufacturing on 07/19/2013. Solid Edge ST6 will be delivered automatically to customers with a current Maintenance Contract. Based on current schedules, English maintenance kits should begin shipping early August, and additional Languages will follow in the coming weeks.
Solid Edge ST6, English 32-bit and 64-bit are available for download from:
Solid Edge ST6 Release Notes are available on the Solid Edge Documentation page:
Just as a reminder, the download folder is going to say "32 bit" on it, even though it contains both 32 and 64 bit. Keep clicking, and you will find both versions available for download.
There have also been some questions about the student version of ST6, which I've been told will be available "this summer".
