If you already ordered z/VSE 6.1, you may skip this blog entry. If you plan to upgrade to z/VSE 6.1 in the future, I recommend to order z/VSE 6.1 from Shopz before z/VSE 6.2 availability in 4th quarter 2017. Reason: If you remember past z/VSE releases, the ordering of the prior release may no longer be possible after the GA of the new release. z/VSE 5.2 was an exception. The new Multi-Version Measurement (MVM) should help to order a new version earlier. See my related MVM blog entries, start with the latest one - here .
