Alright everybody, listen up. Right off the bat, there are temporary storage PTFs – and two for IBM i 7.4. These have been added to the IBM i PTF Guide underneath each of the releases, so check it out.
Also there is a new Security Bulletin that relates to multiple vulnerabilities in Python that affect IBM i 7.4, 7.3, and 7.2. See this link for details and remediation. Moreover, there is a new HIPER group for IBM i 7.4, 7.3, and 7.2, and there are also new Security groups for all of these supported releases, too.
