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.
Please note that we’re able to provide full support for approximately the last five releases. If you’re still running WebSmart 10.2 or older, we recommend you make plans to upgrade as soon as possible.
