They still haven't announced End of Support.

If they follow what they did with V5R3 after another quarter they will
announce end of support will be in one year from that date. They do
promise a one year notification on end of support (see above website).
V4R5 end of support was less than a month after end of marketing.

End of support for upgrading to V5R4 from earlier releases has also been
announced.

So what does end of marketing mean?
- Announcing end of support probably isn't far off.
- Those of you who wanted to upgrade that last hurrah on old machines to
V5R4 and get license keys are probably out of luck.
- A temporary upgrade to V5R4 to then upgrade to newer hardware and/or
software might still be done but you better have a buddy with media and
you better get it done before the 70 day key on the V5R4 expires.
