IBM i PTF Guide, Volume 23, Number 27
July 12, 2021 Doug Bidwell
With the July 4th holidays in the United States, it was a pretty quiet time for PTF updates from Big Blue. There were some High Impact and Pervasive (HIPER) and security patches released, and we took the time to update a few links within the IBM i PTF Guide spreadsheet, which we try to do during these quiet times. All four releases, including IBM i 7.1, had tweaks.
Here is the rundown of PTF Groups by IBM i release level:
PTF Groups 7.4:
PTF Groups 7.3:
PTF Groups 7.2:
PTF Groups 7.1:
New (or Updated) Links for this week:
- QSHell: The Basics of Qshell
- QSHell: Printing output from IBM PASE for i applications
- IFS: Printing a Stream File from the Integrated File System (IFS)
