In April I informed you about the z/VM 7.1 preview - see my blog entry. This announcement also has some statements of z/VM 6.4 service.
Just in case you didn't catch that, I extracted that information below. See also disclaimer in announcement letter.
"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.
The planned release cycle for z/VM V7 means z/VM V6.4 service support will overlap the planned availability of z/VM V7.2 by six months."
Please read more details in the z/VM
