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.
The page has instructions on how to disable the weak RC4 ciphers for the IBM i. We recommend checking out the article in order to make sure your Clover, Nexus, Presto and WebSmart ILE/PHP Apache servers with SSL enabled are secured.
We are currently making some internal changes to how we manage our product license keys. While this is in progress we have temporarily taken down the myBCDsoftware.com program that allows customers to generate short-term license keys.
If you anticipate needing a temporary product license key for testing purposes, please contact your BCD sales rep and we’ll be happy to provide one.
If you were relying on this myBCDSoftware.com feature as part of your actual Disaster Recovery (DR) strategy and need to have the ability to switch your applications over to another system on very short notice, we are also happy to provide longer term temporary license keys to tide you over until the portal page is back. You should, however, keep in mind that our web portal is periodically unavailable for system maintenance. An alternative is to purchase a secondary High Availability product license.
You can reach our sales office in Chicago at (630) 986-0800 to request keys or discuss your needs. Or, if you have any questions about this portal feature, please email or call me at our support office at (250) 655-1766.
Nexus 4.10.0 is now available for download from our public website or our customer portal, myBCDsoftware.com. You can upgrade directly to version 4.10.0 from any release above 3.60.
The highlight of this release is the ability to resequence ECM documents within a folder. To resequence your ECM documents, select a folder, then navigate to the Change Web Object tab in the ECM Maintenance window. From there, you can sort documents by when they were added, their type, or their title.
The BCD Product Development team has tested the following versions of our software at V7R2:
WebSmart ILE/PHP/Clover 10.2 and 10.5
Spool-Explorer 4.52 (server version 4.50)
ProGen Plus 9.7
File-Flash Plus 4.5
Nexus requires a new authorization module (available by request, and to be included in the next build of the software). With WebSmart we encountered an odd, sporadic library lock error on install; you can answer the message with a Retry (R) to get by it. We are currently working on this issue with IBM.
We didn’t run into any other problems.
If you have any questions please contact Technical Support. If you need to verify your current release levels, KB Article 5595 has instructions on how to find these for all our products.
