Error description

  • DOORS DXL Reference Manual always shows the DOORS Major version
    number as its Release value, even when accessed via a Fix Pack
    version of DOORS.
    
    Steps to observe the behavior:
    --------------------------------
    1. Launch a fix pack version of DOORS Client, say DOORS 9.5.2.1
    2. Click on Help - DXL Reference Manual
    3. You would observe the following mentioned in the Manual
    'IBM Rational DOORS
    DXL Reference Manual
    Release 9.5'
    
    Client Impact:
    ---------------
    Client requires the exact version of DOORS to be mentioned in
    the DXL Reference Manual (PDF) since this creates a confusion on
    the availability of functions in DOORS DXL depending on product
    version.
