Important Upgrade Information:
If you plan to upgrade ClearQuest 7.1.x directly to this release and you are running ClearQuest Web, please read technote 1586861 prior to upgrading.

Upgrading from ClearQuest to this release will cause ClearQuest Full-Text Search (FTS) to stop working. Please read technote 1587173 to repair FTS after upgrading.

Special Configuration Settings are needed to allow IBM Rational Doors and Rational Systems Architect (RSA) to integrate with ClearQuest Web using OSLC. These integrations, which were working before upgrading to this version, will be broken until the configuration steps outlined in technote 1588252 are performed.

Technote 1450027 describes behavioral differences in ClearQuest releases (including all Fix Packs) between 7.1.1 and the current release.
