We use Evolution for 3 months.
We didn’t have autoplanning before, but evolution is really faster than conventional planning in 16.2 version.
I think that with some experience and using feasibility we can improve our plan.
It support sliding windows. For the bug “red MU issue” we’ve meet it when we change manually MU (for normalise dose for example ) and/or when we choose option “match target coverage” => this issue is only due to a manual change of MU which train a change in physical machine limit (as gantry speed, mlc speed…)
The algorithm stay a CCC and there is a “big” change in windows organisation : really less floating windows.
The biggest difference for us is the way to optimise dosimetry : there is a lot of more parameter to optimize it (some of them would be really helpful for SBRT treatment : falloffPriority management)
If you have any question don’t hesitate to contact me.

Just quick comment: Sliding window IMRT is not supported in Pinnacle Evolution (Step & Shoot yes).
Dose calculation algorithm is much faster on same hardware. Optimization algorithms are also different and faster:
I agree with other facts, integrated plan feasibility makes optimization problem formulation much easier.
In case of red MUs due to small prescription changes, you can still export the plan which was not the case in earlier versions of Pinnacle (we don't have this problem with our Varian machine).
To be confirmed but next version will require next Philips IT platform with Pinnacle on RHEL : https://www.usa.philips.com/healthcare/product/HC870237/healthsuite-on-premises
