    Token license packaging in 6.0

    Because of issues with generating both 5.0 and 6.0 token licenses from the License Key Center (the license generator would time out and no licenses were generated), version 5.0 licenses are no longer generated when you generate 6.0 token licenses. The only exception is for Rational DOORS 9.6 customers, where 5.0 and 6.0 token client access licenses (CALs) are generated for Rational DOORS Next Generation Analyst and Rational DOORS Next Generation Contributor. All other licenses are generated for version 6.0 only. For version 5.0 token licenses, contact IBM Support.

    Support for Global Configuration Management

    IBM's Global Configuration Management (GCM) tool allows you to link together specific configurations defined in different IBM engineering tools. This kind of "global" configuration can be useful in product line engineering (PLE). For example, you can have a single configuration that maps information from a specific stream and baseline defined in Rhapsody DM to a specific stream and baseline defined in DOORS Next Generation. Beginning in release 6.0 of Rhapsody DM, RDM streams and baselines can be part of such a global configuration.
