Improvements made in Update 1 build (20110622_0930):

  1. Improves stability under periods of high use and heavy load.
  2. Enhances information about model-level locks that may be orphaned while in Revit Server Administrator.
  3. Reduces the rate of growth of the central file on the server. (This enhancement requires both Revit and the server to be updated; if only one is updated, no improvement will be realized.)
  4. Improves reliability of the RevitServerTool. (The Revit Server UR will update the server copy of this tool, and the Revit UR will update the application copy of this tool).
