Last week I informed you about important announcements for the mainframe, z/VSE and z/VM. I am not sure, if you read the z/VM 7.1 preview.
It does not only inform you about the z/VM 7.1. plans, it also provides information about the current z/VM 6.4 release.
-- When z/VM V7.1 becomes available, z/VM V6.4 will receive only corrective service.
-- IBM intends to keep z/VM V6.4 orderable for 18 months after the general availability of z/VM V7.1.
-- For planning purposes, z/VM V6.4 users will receive corrective service for 30 months after the general availability of z/VM V7.1.
-- Planned availability for z/VM 7.1 is 3rd quarter 2018.
Please see the IBM disclaimer for future plan in the announcement letter.
The announcement letter is here.
Have a good weekend.
