New Function APARs for the z/OS Platform

When new function APARs are introduced in the IBM service stream, you can find them collected here in a convenient reference format. You can use this information to review the latest enhancements from IBM and determine which ones to implement.

The APAR information is collected in the following files:

File name Description
mvsstore.zosnewfu.html New function APARs for the past 12 months (HTML)
mvsstore.zosallfu.html New function APARs for the past five years (HTML)
mvsstore.zosnewfu.csv New function APARs for the past five years (CSV)

These files:

  • Provide brief descriptions and links to the new function APARs for a given period (one year or five years)
  • Include information about closed APARs with closed PTFs, if available on the date of file creation
  • Are sorted by APAR close date with the most recent APARs appearing at the top of the file.

The files are available in two formats for your convenience:

  • Browser-ready, web table (HTML). Save this file to your workstation, then click it to display the information in a web page.
  • Comma-separated values (CSV). Save this file to your workstation, then import it into a spreadsheet program. The file uses semi-colons for delimiting items; you might need to indicate the use of this delimiter in your spreadsheet program.    

The files are updated about every month. See the file content for the date of the most recent update.

Download options

You can access the files by using either of the following protocols:  FTP or HTTP.

  • FTP protocol:  If your web browser supports FTP, you can access the files with your browser.  Click the appropriate FTP download link from the table below.
FTP download link File name For use with...
New function APARs for the past 12 months (HTML) mvsstore.zosnewfu.html Web browser
New function APARs for the past five years (HTML) mvsstore.zosallfu.html Web browser
New function APARs for the past five years (CSV) mvsstore.zosnewfu.csv Spreadsheet program
If your web browser does not support FTP, consider using another FTP interface to access the files, such as your preferred FTP application or the command line interface. The FTP location to use is ftp://service.boulder.ibm.com/s390/newfunctionapars.  Anonymous access is supported.
  • HTTP protocol:  If you prefer to access the files from a secure HTTP site using your web browser, visit the following directory:  Secure File Transfer.  From the top-level page, navigate to /fromibm, then /mvs, and look for the mvsstore* files. 
Other considerations

The files are provided as-is. There are no warranties of any kind, and there is no service or technical support available for these from IBM.

For comments on the files, contact zosmig@us.ibm.com.
