information on these enhancements can be found on the BRMS wiki:

1. In 7.3 and later, WRKMEDIBRM restores of library objects may
not create the requested restore *OUTFILE set in the recovery  
2. In 7.3 and later, BRMS parallel backups of an object list    
using more than 4 stand-alone parallel devices may fail with    
MSGSQL0100 and MSGCPF6708.                                      
3. In 7.3 and later, BRMS turnkey created virtual device
