COMPRESS Builds 8000 and higher are up to date with the 2019 Edition of the ASME VIII BPVC. Previous releases, including COMPRESS 2019, have lower build numbers and are not current with the latest ASME Code. The COMPRESS year is displayed on the opening screen and can also be shown, along with the build number, by clicking on Help\About COMPRESS from the main menu. Examples of how this will appear in an ASME compliant version of COMPRESS are shown on the right.
All COMPRESS versions, including very old releases, can be identified by their build release numbers. All build numbers lower than 8000, including COMPRESS Build 6258 and COMPRESS Build 6259, are NOT in compliance with the 2019 Edition of the ASME Code.
