Error description

  • There are actions available in the i Projects Navigator view in
    Rational Developer for i (RDI) 9.6.0.6 to add or remove sequence
    numbers and dates on i projects files, when the preference to
    enable these actions is set. These actions can corrupt the
    character content of the file for characters beyond the basic
    Latin character set because they do not properly observe the
    project file encoding.
