Primavera P6 17.1.7 Released. What’s new in the release? Complete HTML5 support

 

Today, Oracle released their new P6 version, 17.1.7. As I heard, Oracle release one P6 version per month in their cloud. For example 17.1.1 on Jan, 17.1.2 on Feb, … 17.1.7 on July (this month). They release two versions per year in edelivery.oracle.com; End of June/July & End of December.

 

17.1.7 is a major release for Oracle. In this release, User has the option to completely disable Applets (Java) in P6 web. Oracle gave entire P6 page in HTML5 and some page they redesigned well so we can open P6 Web in any browser. Here below I captured some of the pages:

 

EPS Tab

Check Out project in SQLite in P6 Professional

 

One of the important features I like in this release is we can Check out a project in SQLite in the P6 professional for Offline use.

Instead of checking out the project and save it to the local computer, we can save it in SQLite database and work Offline. No separate installation is required. ( Except.Net 4.6.2 version. ) . Watch the three steps to for how this feature works.

 

  • Open the project Check out the project in P6 Professional in SQLite

  • Close P6 Professional,  Login as SQLLite & work Offline
