IBM does not do this often, but today we are contacting all customers of Rational Application Developer via direct email and advising them of a newly published iFix. This iFix, PM53336, has been released Monday 5-Dec-2011. The complete details of this iFix are located in this Flash on IBM Support's website. We are also providing this information via our blog here, and other social channels, to ensure the information reaches all appropriate clients in need of this critical fix.
IBM is advising all clients to download and apply this iFix as soon as practical. It is a single-defect iFix that is isolated to correct a defect in a single component of RAD that communicates errors to the support service. If unfixed, this condition can cause serious performance problems for the users of RAD, or potential network problems for your company's infrastructure. Applying this critical fix as soon as possible is highly recommended to ensure continued stability.
The iFix is available directly from IBM Installation Manager (IIM) within the product, or downloadable directly from IBM FixCentral. The locations are documented in the Flash published today: http

We always listen to feedback for a wide variety of our content. You might be familiar with the feedback form we provide on the bottom of our technotes. One of the fields lets us know if the content helped you achieve your goal:
We would like to know the same for our YouTube videos on the IBMRationalSupport channel! We now include a reminder in our videos that you can use the Like or Dislike buttons:
Did the video help? Click Like! Did it fall short of helping you? The Dislike button is there, too. Of course, there is also the comment section for each video that you can use for detailed responses. Know that unlike technote feedback, YouTube comments are not anonymous.
Keep the other buttons in mind, too. You can create your own playlists and add our videos using the Add to button. You can also use the Share button to share the videos through embedding, email, or social networking channels. We would love for you to spread the word!
