Update Umberto NXT LCA released (v7.0.8.203)
« on: July 16, 2013, 16:18 »
We have released today (July 16, 2013) an update for Umberto NXT LCA. The version number is and it replaces

This is an intermediate update, available for free to registered users. The update notifier on the start page of Umberto NXT LCA will inform users about the new version. A link to download the installation file is provided. The ecoinvent v2.2 and ecoinvent v3 database installers have also been updated.

The following changes were made in the new version:
  • Several bugs fixed
  • Improved performance of calculation and results display
  • Improved memory usage
  • Installer now detects whether operating system is 32-bit or 64-bit and installs appropriate version. 64-bit version has better memory usage and is recommended for large LCA models.
  • ecoinvent v3 data: some activity datasets in the Consequential system model where the material type of the reference flow was not set properly during the import have been corrected and are now provided consistently with all other activity datasets in a flow-oriented manner
  • Model Migration Tool: A model migration tool is available as a separate installer. It allows migration of projects created with 'Umberto 5.6 for LCA' to Umberto NXT LCA. The new version Umberto NXT LCA (v7.0.8.203) is required to open the migrated projects (.umberto files). Users of  'Umberto 5.6 for LCA' will be contacted and provided with the Model Migration Tool.
  • Updated user manual

We recommend that users of Umberto NXT LCA update to this latest version to benefit from the improvements made. The ecoinvent v3 database should also be installed anew. A direct download link for the ecoinvent installer file is displayed on the start page.
