IBM i PTF Guide, Volume 21, Number 8
February 25, 2019 Doug Bidwell
Right off the bat, there are new High Impact and Pervasive (HIPER) PTFs for IBM i 7.1, IBM 7.2., and IBM i 7.3, which are the three currently support releases of the operating system. (Well, IBM i 7.1 is on extended support, not full support, so that is like having 2.5 or 2.75 releases, depending on how you want to do that math.) So, by all means, get hyper about HIPERs and get a-moving.
As far as new links in the accompanying sheet for the IBM i PTF Guide goes, there was nothing of note this week. But check back next week. I might find something interesting to break out.
And now, your weekly tip: Have you tried the Mouse Wheel setting in ACS? It makes paging up or down in subfiles a lot simpler. . . .
The Guide at a glance: There are no new defectives this week (2/24/19), and we are still going for a new record! Here is the defective PTF rundown, which is the last defective for each release:
