This new option allows limiting the Dynamic Factor to be less than or equal to 2, when the mesh is not operating within its main resonance range.
Replace Rolling Rings with Imported FE Components
Rolling rings can now be replaced by an FE component to take into account deformation of the ring.
Database Item Name Conflict Reporting
If the names of database items in a design are changed when a design is loaded due to existing items in the database, the design status will report the changes.

Imported FE condensation can now be setup and run for multiple FE at once.
Permissible Track Truncation
New property to specify the permissible amount of track truncation for ball bearings, which is used in conjunction with a new safety factor for track truncation.
