IxANVL 8.95 EA SP1 is an "Early Adopter" release. It provides support for the new licensing tool for Ixia, which is the ILU, replacing the existing IRU. It also includes bug fixes since the previous release.
The ILU support in Linux is through CLI only. The "ANVL Getting Started Guide" lists details of how ILU can be used from CLI.
The following is a brief description of new Infrastructure support:
I. New Licensing tool ILU (Ixia Licensing Utility)

Java has a known caveat that requires an extra rpm file,
xorg-x11-deprecated-libs-6.8.2-31.i386.rpm, that sometimes is not
installed by default on an RHE 5.0 machine. As the IxANVL installer
is a Java-based application, it is required that this file be installed
in order to function normally. Please refer to the Linux installation
notes below for a workaround to fix this problem.
