There have been a couple of fixes released recently (these are interim
fixes, not fixpacks).

One is for Node.js which only affects if you have the Cordova tools feature
installed (not part of base RPG and COBOL Tools). If you do not have the
Cordova tools feature installed, applying the interim fix doesn't affect
anything.

The other is for the IBM JDK to address some security vulnerabilities.
Buck's note has the links to the security bulletins.

Thanks,
Eric

Well, sort of. RDi is based on Eclipse, and it comes packaged with
IBM's Java runtime. These fixes apply to that. There are a pair of
security fixes relating to this:

Patching the SDK fixes Java security vulnerabilities in RDi.
