V4R5 was the last release to come out before end of support of x-3. V5R4
is the x-3 of any follow on release to V7R1. It's end of support is
09/30/2013. I would expect no follow on release until after that. My
guess would be April 2014.
IBM broke their pattern of a new release every other year. 7.1 will be
the top dog for 4 years running. Getting as bad as that old legacy
V5R4 lasted 7 years. That's 3 years longer than V3R2 which was the last
time we were concerned with ANZOBJCVN.
