BCD Minimum Support OS/400 Release Level Notification

As our product line evolves, we strive to keep up-to-date with IBM OS/400 release levels while giving you enough time to plan for these changes. This allows us to use current technologies in our products and to make those technologies accessible to you from within our products.

IBM discontinued support for V5R4 on September 30, 2013. Any future BCD product releases and updates will require IBM i 6.1 as the minimum OS/400 release level.

The following versions of our products are the last releases that can be installed on V5R4:

  • Presto 6.2
  • WebSmart PHP 10.10.0
  • WebSmart ILE 10.10.0
  • Clover 10.10.0
  • Catapult 8.0.0
  • Nexus 4.10
  • ProGen Plus 9.70 (Update PG97006)
  • Spool-Explorer 8.0.0
  • File-Flash Plus 4.50
  • DbGen 2.5 (Update DB25R0002)
  • Docu-Mint 6.6

If you have any questions or concerns please contact Technical Support. Knowledge Base article 5595 includes a list of commands for checking software release levels.

Did you know you can edit RPG code in the WebSmart IDE?

Are you looking for a free alternative to SEU? You can now use WebSmart to edit and compile RPG source code. This makes WebSmart an even better all purpose editor!

You’ll be able to enjoy some of the editor benefits inherent in a client side IDE, such as:

  • Color coding, more intuitive copy/paste, undo, find, MRU, etc.
  • Double clicking procedures and subroutines from a list to position to them in the code
  • Viewing the joblog and compile listing in new tabs in the IDE
  • Stepping through your code in debug
  • Smart tabbing – no need to open multiple emulator sessions

BCD Minimum Support OS/400 Release Level Notification

As part of our ongoing development strategy and planning efforts here at BCD we are scheduling future internal IBM i system upgrades. This will affect the minimum OS/400 release level supported by BCD products. Our product line currently requires a minimum OS/400 release level of V5R3. As of January 1, 2012 V5R4 will be the minimum OS/400 release level supported by most BCD products and updates released after that date.

As our products continue to evolve and new products are introduced it is generally our intention to keep in step with IBM OS/400 release levels, while also giving our clients enough time to plan for this change. This allows us to develop using current technology and to make this technology available to you in our product family.

IBM discontinued support for V5R3 on April 30, 2009.
