Our October 15, 2017 refresh (R67) is now available.
This refresh of the TAA Productivity Tools contains three new tools:
- ENDSBS3 - brings the system to a quiesced state by ending most subsystems.
- DSPFCNUSG2 - summarizes the function point security in an easy to understand report.
- WRKACTGRP - work with the activation groups that have been created for the current job.
In addition, this refresh contains several fixes and enhancements. The documentation for refreshes has been reorganized. All of the changes for a refresh are described in a single "refresh note". All refresh notes are gathered together into a single page. A page containing only the most recent notes is available as well.
This refresh supports IBM i 7.1, 7.2 and 7.3. Ordering the refresh is recommended in order to keep your tools up to date.
Please make sure you have the following PTFs or their supersedes installed on your system. These correct IBM problems that may cause an install failure. The problem was reported as APAR SE66239.

In our testing for IBM i 7.3 we found an operating system problem that affected the CVTAUTLOBJ, CVTAUTLOBJ2, and DSPEMTAUTL commands. IBM has released a PTF to fix this problem. Please apply this PTF before installing this refresh on IBM i 7.3.
