Hot Fixes

If you encounter a software bug which prevents you from finishing your work, you can expect our Technical Support to provide an immediate hot fix. Often this means that you can download a fixed PEAXACT version the next day. You don't have to wait for the next regular maintenance update.

Maintenance Updates

PEAXACT maintenance updates are released in a short cycle (several times a year). This ensures continuous bug fixing and improvements. by default, PEAXACT informs you about new versions on startup. The latest changes are presented on the What's New page.
