IBM i PTF Guide, Volume 22, Number 36
September 9, 2020 Doug Bidwell
With the Labor Day weekend underway in the United States, a bank holiday in Europe the week before, and everybody having just about enough of the coronavirus pandemic, it was expectedly quiet on the PTF front in IBM i Land this past weekend when we took a look at the database of patches. Which is a good thing.
But we like to be thorough and complete, and the IBM i PTF Guide always has some useful information you need and this is the most current way to get it.
As for the PTF rundown by release, there weren’t any, so that is easy.
Tips/Definitions: Not really a tip, as such, but we hope you were able to take some time with friends and family over the holiday, even if it was remotely. This would be much harder if we did not live in the Age of Information Technology.
The Guide at a glance: There are no new defectives this week (09/05/20). Here is the defective PTF rundown, which is the last defective for each release:
