Whats new in SP5 P6

Hey all!

I am a very new user to Primavera (1 week) and am still trying to grasp a few things. My company is planning to upgrade from SP2 to SP5 (we will upgrade to SP3 first ofcourse).

I was wondering if there was a list of "Whats New in SP5"? I tried checking online and all I got was a dead link on the Oracle site.

I have seen the "Issues Resolved" but I am more keen to find something that would benefit the users and not just the system admins.

    There's never been a service pack 5 for P6.

    What version are you running? To check, open up P6 and go to Help - About P6

    You should see something like this: Release: 7.0 Service Pack 4

    Most people will describe their version as "P6v7.2 or P6v8.0".

    Actually, there is a SP5 for P6 v7.
    You can see the details in the following KM note:
    Primavera Project Management P6 version 7.0 (P6 v7) Service Pack 5 (Doc ID 1515477.1)

    Oh, my mistake. Looks like it came out in December.

    I was going off the versions listed in the knowledgebase version pull down menu.

    Looking through the changes, it's all bug fixes.
