Pinned topic DB2 Express-C 10.5 with new fix pack?

‏2014-04-09T02:38:27Z |

It seems that DB2 Express-C 10.5 is still fix pack 1 level. But fix pack 3 for other DB2 10.5 editions are already available.

So, how about release plan for DB2 Express-C with new fix pack ?

thank you.

    Do you mean a full-install package for Express-C 10.5.3?  Because Fix Packs cannot be used with Express-C:

    DB2 Express-C
    DB2 fix packs can not be used with the Free version of DB2 Express-C. If you purchase the optional 12 Months Subscription license (also known as the Fixed Term License or FTL) you will be able to use DB2 Express with the FTL license and will be able to install the regular fix packs (Universal fix pack or Server fix pack).

    I thought that Express-C versions are only released at the GA or FP1 level and not being updated afterwards, but I may be wrong about that.

    Hi,Luke. Thanks for your comment.

    Yes. I hope that dev team will release new full DB2 express-c 10.5 with fp3 image.

    Previously, dev team released Express-c with newer fix pack than fp1, for example DB2 v9.7 Express-C fp5.
