scale a fill pattern without having to reload it (plus it automatically previews the scale change)
As per the release notes, it will force a Dynamo upgrade onto your system. Currently for me, I keep DynamoInstall1.2.1.exe handy: so I uninstall Dynamo 1.3.2 and install 1.2.1. This allows me to have backward compatibility to Revit 2015, which I still need (for now).
For Revit 2015 R2: This update requires one of the following: Autodesk Revit 2015 R2 for subscription customers (build: 20140905_0730) Autodesk Revit 2015 Update Release 9 for R2 for subscription customers (build: 20150704_0715)

The Revit Clinic has revealed some key dates for upcoming Revit releases, and the associated effect on the Collaboration for Revit platform. Highlighted in red below, it appears that the release of Update 7 (UR7) for Revit 2015 is imminent, and that Collaboration for Revit 2016 will be released on April 17. Could this mean we will see Revit 2016 available on that date also?
“The planned downtimes are as follows: 2015 Update Release 7 & C4R 2015.4 – March 6 … C4R 2015.5 and C4R 2016.0 – April 17“
