SPSS Statistics 21.0 Fix Pack 1 Fix List

Release notes


Abstract

A comprehensive list of defect corrections for the SPSS Statistics 21.0 Fix Pack 1. Details of the fixes are listed below under the tab for the respective Fix Pack. If you have questions about a particular defect, please contact Customer Support.

Note: each successive Fix Pack is comprehensive and contains the material from the earlier Fix Packs for that Release, as well as all Interim Fixes made available since the previous Fix Pack or full Release. In other words, when multiple Fix Packs are available, you would not need to apply Fix Pack 1 before applying Fix Pack 2.

Also, these lists may contain some internal defect numbers. This was necessitated to provide a complete list of corrected defects as we continue to transition our internal defects to APARs. Future Fix Lists will only contain APAR references.
