Apex 9.6 is now shipping. Apex 9.6 has some important enhancements and fixes. There are no changes to the database or Apex licensing from Apex 9.5 so it only takes a couple minutes to upgrade Apex to version 9.6.
A complete list of features is available in the Apex 9.6 Announcement.
Hard copies of the announcement are also available. You will receive one with your upgrade package, or you can contact Vulcan Software to get one.
If you have a current support and enhancement agreement you will automatically be receiving Apex 9.6.
