16.5 SP05 PL01 is now available! An official post from the PDNN (PowerDesigner News Network)

Howdy designers,

It has come to my attention that the SP05 PL01 is now available to download!  If you’ve already made the upgrade to 16.5 SP05, please stop reading this, go download it at, under Packages and Patches, and then come back and finish reading this while it’s downloading the 256MB file.  Go ahead, I’ll wait.

If you haven’t upgraded to SP05, I suggest you give it try and then apply the PL01 patch.  If you missed my last blog on the many amazing features of SP05, you can read it here:

SPO5 is Alive!

As always, do your research, and consult your doctor about any side effects, before applying any updates.  And without further ado, here’s the fixes you’ll find in this release.

I wish I had more to share with all of you, but sometimes it’s better to keep it short and sweet, like a mini gummy bear.  They’re so much shorter than regular gummy bears.  Not sure if they’re sweeter though.  


Anyways, time to get back to work, or head outside and enjoy the spring weather, which is what I want to after posting this blog.

Until next time,

  • Sorry for the “stupid” question, but I’ve been asked to install the latest version of PowerDesigner for a client and I’m looking for the s/w on SAP’s site.  Does the current installation located at Installations and Upgrades – P” SYBASE POWERDESIGNER” SYBASE POWERDESIGNER 16.5 include the latest patch, or do I need to install and then patch it with the SP05 PL01 update?

    Also I notice there is a “SYBASE POWERDESIGNER 16.5” and “SYBASE POWERDESIGNER SE 16.5”.  What is the difference?

  • Hello Arnaud,

    Thank you for your blog, I am so excited about this. But I could not find where to buy this product. I found only one website that is in Germerny. Could I buy it somewhere in the U.S. ? I want to buy the DataArchitect/DM (standalone seat). Thank you very much.
