Proteus products on HP-UX 11.0 or Red Hat Linux 7.2

Dear Synopsys Customer:

If you are using the Synopsys Proteus products on HP-UX 11.0 or Red Hat Linux 7.2, please read this letter carefully.

Synopsys announced the end-of-life for support of HP-UX in September 2005 , and the end-of-life for support of Red Hat 7.2 in November 2004.

Accordingly, the Synopsys Proteus product release Y-2006.09, scheduled for September 2006, and new updates and service packs to this product, will no longer support either HP-UX 11.0 or Red Hat Linux 7.2.  

By providing you with this reminder notice, we hope to help minimize your inconvenience in implementing this change. If you are affected by this change, Synopsys is available to assist you in the migration of your Synopsys products to another supported operating system. 

General information on the operating systems and versions supported by Synopsys products are available at the Synopsys web site here.

Please refer to the Proteus product documentation for product-specific information concerning platform and OS support.

If you have any further questions or need assistance, please feel free to contact your local Synopsys CAE or Account Team.
