We have created the SAS product release announcements board so that you can stay informed about the latest updates to SAS® products. The bulletins on the board will help you to know: when was a product released, the current release level for a product, and which products are in a specific revision.

To find your release, visit the release announcements page and enter your keywords (for example, "Viya" or "TS1M5") in the Search field. The suggestion feature will display the topics that match. Or you can click the Search button for a complete list of results.
SAS® products include several releases and revisions that contain new software features and functionality.
A revision refers to the products and releases that are made available to SAS customers on a certain date. An example of a revision is 13w26, which indicates that this revision was made available in the year 2013 during week 26. With this particular revision, SAS Institute introduced SAS 9.4 (TS1M0).
There are many occasions in which you will need to know your SAS release and revision. For example, this information is often required when interacting with Technical Support or Contracts. To determine your release and revision, open your SAS software order email and find the Information for Tech Support Site Number section. A field named Product or Internal Reference contains your revision level, as shown below:
In this example, the revision level is 15w42.
Another way to determine your revision is to navigate to the \SAS Software Depot\install_doc\your order-number\ directory and open the soi.html file, which contains your revision number. For example, if the order number is 12345678, open the soi.html file that resides in drive\SAS Software Depot\install_doc\12345678\. In the soi.html file, your revision number is displayed in a field named Product or Internal Reference, as shown in the example below:
In this example, the revision level is 16w17.
