IBM i PTF Guide, Volume 19, Number 12
March 29, 2017 Doug Bidwell
It is a bit quiet out there in PTF Land this week. But there has been some activity. There is a new HIPER group for each IBM i release that is currently supported, and there are tweaks to Backup and Recovery Groups for IBM i 7.2 and 7.3. There are also some anomalies on other groups.
For instance, the Must Gather tools usually go along at a pace of updating every two weeks, but now it has been over a month since an update came out. Go figure. . . . The new 5733-OPS Open Source licensed programs have not been released with the touted detail – or at least our team can find nothing on it yet. The general availability of that software set was schedule for some time in March, and we only have a few days left.
By the way, we added a row to the IBM i PTF Guide for Recommended Fixes, and this links you to the IBM site for additional recommended PTFs that have not been made available in Groups or the Cume recently.
Watch for more changes. In the meantime, here is the archive of the guides:
