Has the ARL on the PLC been updated for 2671?

We are still seeing the contents of the previous 2670 level. Thanks. 

Level 5

Actually, this is the content of the files on the PLC, as of 18th Apr - the level for 2672 is still showing as of 2670 content, dated 1st April 2022

@sohbinong - ARL CAB file published in the Product and License Center (PLC) definitely currently contains scripts and contents from version 2672. The SQL script shown in your screenshot doesn't match the file that is currently in the PLC.

Sometimes old content may be cached somewhere between you and the PLC servers. You can also try downloading the ARL CAB file directly from the following URL to get the latest:

hi Chris, 

Thanks for the updates. As you are probably aware, manual downloads are not allowed.

@sohbinong - OK. Automated downloads should generally use the URL for downloading the ARL CAB file. Only use the PLC if you are doing manual downloads.

@nairvij - please see my earlier comments on this thread for a direct link to the latest ARL CAB file that should bypass any PLC caching issues that may be going on.

@ChrisG  Thanks Chris I have downloaded that can you please link purl 518 and latest EOSL also.

@nairvij - the latest version of the PURL and SKU libraries is #501 (see the release notes here), which matches what I see in the PLC.

As far as I know, EOSL data is included in the ARL CAB file download which I understand you now have.

Level 2

@ChrisG I have imported all the cab files but SKU library Version is still 499
