It's been almost 2 years and a lot that has happened since I wrote a blog called MQ - Where do you start? Where do you go? This year WebSphere MQ turned 20! That's 20 years of enabling programs to communicate with each other across a network of unlike components, such as processors, subsystems, operating systems and communication protocols.
There's also been new versions, updated support pages and information centers, as well as loads of new and revised technical information to help you solve most any problem you might encounter.
Like I mentioned in my first blog, the best place to start any problem solving is the WebSphere MQ Support Portal. It's still your doorway to everything support related. Our social media presence if also rapidly growing, check out the Social Media channels for WebSphere and CICS Support page that's been updated with new links and new products.
And don't forget you can subscribe to be notified of critical product support updates through My Notifications. It free and easy to sign up! Check out the blog post Stay informed of critical IBM product support updates with My Notifications by my colleague Joseph for step by step instructions.
So here's the new stuff:
WebSphere MQ maintenance/downloads
Technical and educational links!
Hot new/revised WebSphere MQ IBM Redbook publications
WebSphere MQ social stuff

IBM product teams make decisions on product release plans based on a number of inputs, including Requests For Enhancement (RFE) raised through the developerWorks IBM WebSphere RFE Community.
