IBM i PTF Guide, Volume 21, Number 4
January 28, 2019 Doug Bidwell
Alright, good people of IBM i Land, here is what is new for the latest edition of the IBM i PTF Guide. There are HIPERs – short for High Impact/Pervasive, meaning you need to pay attention to these – for all three current releases, which means IBM i 7.1 (which is on extended support), IBM i 7.2 (which is still on regular support), and IBM i 7.3 (which is new enough to not care about how old it is yet).
There are also PTFs for the Backup and Recovery group for IBM i 7.2 and IBM i 7.3 releases.
As for new links this week, I am cutting you a break because I am still catching up and therefore there are no new links. (Don’t get used to it.)
And here is a helpful tip from your Uncle Doug: Were you aware that the 2 GB limit for file transfers has been removed in the new ACS IFS upload? No more mapping of drives required!
The Guide at a glance: There are no new defectives this week (1/26/19), and we are still going for a new record! Here is the defective PTF rundown, which is the last defective for each release:
