This document provides links to supplemental information for each IBM Cloud Pak System W3500, W3550, W3700, and W4600 release.
Use the links in the following table to access the supplemental information that is published with each release.
For links to Knowledge Center documentation, see this page: Documentation for IBM Cloud Pak System.
"Included firmware" documents are not published for fix packs that do not include a firmware update.
Starting with version 220.127.116.11, release notes are published only for major releases and not for fix packs (for example, V2.3.x.x). Therefore, the "Release notes by Version" link is the same for each major release and subsequent fix pack. If a fix pack requires release notes that are specific to that release, they are listed in the "List of fixes" link for that release in a section titled "See the following known limitations". If this section does not exist for a particular release, there are no specific release notes for that fix pack other than the release notes that were previously published for the associated major release (the link in the "Release Notes by Version" column).
