I used the "dbstat" command to identify the tool version of an Allegro database. (dbstat <*.brd>).Originally posted in cdnusers.org by mcatramb91
It does not matter if you saved the Allegro database at a higher dot version unless you use functionality on that version it will remain at the lower dot version. In other words, if you uprev an 14.2 Allegro database to 15.5.1 it will be marked as a 15.2 database until you make changes which are only supported on the higher dot versions. The same holds true when creating a new design using File > New where dbstat will report that the database is 15.0.
One final note, when running the dbstat command on an Allegro 15.5.1 database it will report the version as 15.6 at least on the designs I have been working on.
Hope this helps,
