Installed the update... it wiped out my source member descriptions in RSE. I can't recall (or find) where to enable those again.

Subject: [WDSCI-L] iSphere Plug-in 2.9 released

Hi Folks,

It is time to update your iSphere plug-in to version 2.9.0.

* Added filter option "spooled file name" to the iSphere spooled file subsystem.

* Added filter options "starting date/time" and "ending date/time" to the iSphere spooled file subsystem.

* Added options for changing the text (displayed next to the name of the spooled file) to the context menu of the iSphere Spooled File subsystem.

* Added options group "auto-refresh delay" to the iSphere "Appearance"
preferences page. By default that delays auto-refresh when filtering large message files.

* Added option to "pin" 5250 session views.

* Added option to disable/enable 5250 multi session views.

* Added option to group 5250 sessions by connections or to open individual views for each session.

* Added option "Copy Members to" to source file objects and member filters.

* Changed option "Copy Members to..." to copy members between different connections (systems).

* Fixed "Copy Members to" to copy member between source files with different source line lengths.

* Changed iSphere Compare Editor to ignore members that have been already opened, when started in "Browse" mode. Removed message "Member is already open in an editor".

* Changed object decorator to optionally display the library and file name of file members.

The update sites are available at:

Notice: Starting with 2.9, iSphere requires i5/OS V6R1, because we cannot save the iSphere library for V5R4 any longer. But you can however compile the library from an i Project by hand. The process of compiling iSphere is described on the iSphere help page at:

Follow "Contribution" and "Building iSphere" to load the help page. Then scroll down to "Library build" to learn how to compile iSphere.

A lot of the new features have been realized because of your feedback.
Feedback is important for us. If you think something is bad, please let us know about it. If you think something is good, we love to hear that, too. If you have any ideas for new features, please don`t hesitate to send us a feature request.
