IBM i PTF Guide, Volume 21, Number 24
June 17, 2019 Doug Bidwell
We are all excited that IBM i 7.4 will be shipping at the end of the week, on the AS/400’s 31st birthday, but there is still the usual tweaking that needs to be done on the earlier and still-current releases thanks to the changes happening in PTF Land.
But to be honest, there is not that much this week. There is a new Java Group for IBM i 7.3, IBM i 7.2, and IBM i 7.1, and that’s about it.
Also, our apologies but in last week’s IBM i PTF Guide, we did a little “fake news,” but not on purpose. QMGTOOLS for V7R1 is not new, the date on the savf was changed to get us excited, the build date is actually 11/2/18. Thanks to Michael Mayer for letting us know.
As for New (Updated) Links this week, have tweaked the stuff for IBM iDoctor Services.
Now, a tip: CALL QLZARCAPI is neat, so check your joblog and find interesting info.
The Guide at a glance: No, there are new defectives this week (6/15/19). Here is the defective PTF rundown, which is the last defective for each release:
