Mentor Graphics DxDesigner VX Support

Mentor Graphics DxDesigner VX Support

PADS DxDesigner 9.5, released Oct 2012 (or EE 7.9.5) is not shown as compatble until 10.2 M020 and with no planned compatibility with 10.1:

A new version of the software ("VX") is soon to be released and is available to PTC for compatibility testing from Mentor now.  Please request this version now and begin compatibility testing so that it isn't another 1.5 years before you list it (and then only with the most recent release/build).

Ref Case 11938502 and this poorly formed response from the support agent:

"To be have a support on Mentor Graphics 9.5 for Windchill PDMLink 10.1 M020 you need file a Product Idea on Product Ideas @ PTC Community"

It doesn't seem appropriate that it would be necessary to request current compatibility testing via Product Ideas.

Hi Stephen,

I see EE7.9.5 listed for support in Windchill 10.1 M050 from our internal matrix.  It had just missed the cutoff for the 10.1 M040 release unfortunately.

I have made multiple attempts to get early access to Mentor VX.0 with no sucess.  It looks like PTC won't see the software until VX.1 releases.   Our current planned support is 10.2 M030 and X-26 (Windchill 10.3?). 

Thanks,

Mark

If it "just missed the cutoff for the 10.1 M040 release", then why has it also missed the m040 WWGM patch that came out 8 January 2014 ( https://www.ptc.com/appserver/cs/view/solution.jsp?n=CS133804 ) and the future WWGM patch at end of May ( Footnote 2, http://www.ptc.com/WCMS/files/138066/en/Windchill10.1M040CADIntegrationMatrix3714.pdf )?  7.9.5 and 9.5 are completely missing from the matrices for 10.1.
