Update to WEBES 5.5 : what's new?

The new features of WEBES 5.5 are documented here and the most important points that I can mention are support for Command View 9.x and the EVA 8400.

It gets auto-updated automatically when using the RSP Software Manager.

I noticed that this new version takes a lot of more time to discover and poll your systems. This seems to have reduced the CPU usage and memory footprint of DESTA_Service considerably, which is a good thing. However, after WEBES is upgraded from 5.4 to 5.5, it has to rediscover all your devices. This took over 4 hours at my site. Any event that happens during that time frame might get queued until it has finished discovering your systems.
