Today a new z/VSE 6.1 announcement letter was posted.
This is in addition to functionality that is already provided with the Application Pak feature of the product. Both features require a license to use them. To get the license for the GPS feature, the GPS feature must be ordered separately. The GPS feature requires that the Application Pak feature is also licensed. More information on the IBM TCP/IP for z/VSE 2.1 Application Pak feature is here.
The announcement letter also reminds you about the availability of the z/VSE Network Appliance on the z13 and z13s servers. New IBM Storage options are supported - the IBM TS7700 R4.0 and TS7760 as well as the IBM DS8880 series (DS8884, DS8886 and DS8888).
... and there is a Statement of general direction (SOD) included:
Stabilization of z/VSE support for the IBM System z10® server family: z/VSE V6.1 is the last z/VSE release planned to support the IBM System z10 server family of servers.
The announcement letter is here.
