There were no changes to ER/Studio Business Architect and Software Architect, both of which retain the 18.0 version number. 

Note. All 18.x clients and servers are cross compatible, however, users taking advantage of the new PostgreSQL platform must use the latest 18.3 version of both Team Server and Data Architect.

Note. The Data Architect Viewer has also been updated to handle the new platforms in Data Architect.
