Have no fear, once again we are here to help keep you up to date with the latest and greatest information! We've posted the last of all the replays available, so now you can go back and review the great ones you had attended or listen for the first time to the ones you may have missed! And, with the release last week of CLM 2011, the latest replay should be even more timely for you:
Have any ideas for what you'd like to see in upcoming Open Mic sessions? Let us know! To suggest a future event, you can leave feedback directly in the comments here...
Over the past week, and particularly this past weekend, a few new downloads made their way through our tweet stream and Facebook wall. Seeing as these were posted during typically 'off' hours for most of us, we thought it would be of some benefit to highlight those recent releases here, to raise visibility in the case that you may have missed and need one or more of these downloads:

Global Rational User Group:
Addressing Application Development Complexity with EGL, an Open, Extensible Programming Language
Webcast date: Tuesday, June 21, 2011
Webcast time: 11:00 AM ET
Sign up for this webcast
Application development today, particularly for the web and mobile, is complicated by an ever-changing world of languages, frameworks, and technologies. Further compounding the problem is the need to support the myriad of runtime platforms, devices, and middleware layers that are typically in the mix. EGL, a programming language that was recently open sourced on Eclipse.org as part of the EDT (EGL Development Tools) project, addresses these complexities by providing a common, extensible language and programming model across the various aspects of the application. Inherent in EGL is a cross-platform compiler that allows a single language to be used to deploy code to the diverse platforms that exist today in most enterprises. EGL also allows the retargeting of code to different platforms and frameworks as these technologies evolve or as new technologies appear.
Come learn about EGL, how it is architected, and how it can be extended through the use of stereotypes and annotations. Also learn how you can use EGL today to simplify development of modern applications for the web, mobile, and enterprise systems.
Will Smythe is the Product Line Manager for EGL and EGL-related tools and solutions from IBM, including IBM Rational Business Developer and Rational Migration Extension
Tim Wilson is the Chief Architect of EGL and is the Project Lead for the Eclipse EGL Development Tools (EDT) project

Please join us tomorrow as Carolyn Pampino, Solution Architect for Geographically Distributed Application Lifecycle Management, leads a discussion around CLM with 3.0 Jazz Products.
We've enjoyed holding this series of Open Mic calls with you, and hope you have found them useful. Many thanks to Stephanie Bagot for her most excellent work in coordinating the calls and speakers, and running the show.
Want more? What topics/products would you like to see covered in a future open mic call or series? Leave a comment and let us know ... we'd love to hear from you!
Hope to see you there!
To help you take full advantage of your software, the Rational Support Technical Exchange hosts Open Mic conference calls and webcasts where technical experts share their knowledge and answer your questions on specific technical topics. Visit this page often for notices of upcoming events. Events will be recorded for those not able to attend live events.

We're just over halfway into 2011 now, and thought it'd be fun to look back and see what content on Notes from Rational Support proves to be the most popular. So here you go, the top seven posts that you told us were hot bits of information by virtue of your click-throughs:
Did we miss one of your favourite posts you think should have been highlighted more? Have an idea for content you'd like to see? Let us know in the comments and we'll work even harder to provide exactly what you want to see here, and of course less of what you don't

It's a good day to be an IBMer! Today, IBM marks its centennial. Whoo hoo! Lots of good stuff marking the day over at http
Some external links as well:

Did you notice the hubub yesterday? No? Missed the excitement, eh? Well have no fear, we're here to help!
Collaborative Lifecycle Management 2011 (CLM 2011 for short) went live yesterday, amid some fanfare over on Jazz.net. To help you navigate and find some of the new and relevant CLM information, following are some outstanding resources for all your CLM 2011 needs!
And because we know you all love your pointers to the downloads:

TheOnDemandDemoGuy provides a short introduction on using IBM®Rational® Team Concert for complex systems and software development. It takes you through a scenario that uses several IBM Rational products to show how process controls can be enacted through rule based process guidance. The demo starts in the Rational DOORS requirements database where integration is used with Rational Team Concert to create an implementation request for some work to be performed in an IBM Rational Rhapsody model. It then steps through a work flow using the features of Rational Team Concert to manage both the changes to the model and a formal review process enacted on the project.

If you're an administrator for a Rational Synergy/Change installation that uses Informix and you haven't seen this technote: "Increase IBM Informix Dynamic Server 11.5 STACKSIZE parameter to prevent Informix crashes", then we STRONGLY suggest that you give it a read and implement the setting change it suggests.
Under certain circumstances, the default STACKSIZE for the Informix server is too small and can possibly lead to a stack overflow condition, which can bring the server offline. While the server can usually be brought back online without incident, in some cases it cannot and the server needs to be re-created from backups.
The tech note above suggests increasing STACKSIZE and restarting the Informix server to pro-actively prevent the stack overflow issue. If you're an admin for Rational Synergy or Rational Change, and use Informix as your back-end database, we highly encourage you to implement the changes addressed in this technote.

Rational Support was very busy at Innovate 2011 this week! Lots of great conversations and sessions - Take a look back at this week's blog posts from Notes from Rational Support and our friends at IBM Electronic Support for all the details!
Of course Innovate wasn't JUST for the attendees! If you weren't able to make it out to Orlando this year, you can still reap some fabulous benefits from the conference through our blog posts, but especially through the IBM Rational Livestream feeds for the conference! Take some time and check out all the great keynote presentations we recorded and hosted just for you! I think you'll find some fabulously useful information there!
Notes from Rational Support blog articles:
Of course, our friends over at the IBM Electronic Support Community have also been busy at Innovate and posting their blog articles too:
