It would be nice if there were more frequent updates of a 'service pack'
type nature to where there was no longer anything so disruptive as a
release update. After some number of these service pack updates you would
simply be at the next release.

Sort of a 'Technology Refresh' thing . . .

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
Windows stuff.

V5R4 lasted 7 years. That's 3 years longer than V3R2 which was the last
time we were concerned with ANZOBJCVN.

Yes, there is a new version planned. When is the question, not if.
