    - Support is added for z/OS Version 2 Release 3.
    
        FIXCAT KEYWORD: ZOS0203T/K ZOS0204T/K
    
      Support is added for z/OS Version 2 Release 3 XL C/C++.
    
    - Support is added for
      Enterprise COBOL for z/OS Version 6 Release 2.
    
      The new TEST(SEPARATE) compiler option in 6.2 is not
      supported by Debug Tool. To get support for TEST(SEPARATE) in
      COBOL 6.2, you need to upgrade to the z/OS Debugger 14.1
      included in IBM Developer for z 14.1 or IBM Debug for z 14.1.
    
        FIXCAT KEYWORD: COB0602T/K
    
    - Support is added for
      Enterprise PL/I for z/OS Version 5 Release 2.
    
    - Support is added for
      CICS Transaction Server for z/OS Version 5 Release 4.
    
        FIXCAT KEYWORD: CIC0504T/K
    
    - Support is added for IMS Version 15 Release 1.
    
    - Support is added for
      Automatic Binary Optimizer for z/OS Version 1 Release 3.

    -Debug Tool ESTAE handling causes ABENDS878 below line in CICS.
     (PI80515 at 13.1)
    
    -Debug Tool session abends with short on storage (SOS) on a
     GETMAIN performed by CEECICS.
    
     The SOS occurs when a COBOL V6 program compiled NOTEST is
     called.
    
     Analyzing the storage can shows 1000+ blocks of storage with
     incrementing storage blocks sizes.  The size of the blocks
     increase by alternating x'90' and x'A0' bytes. The data inside
     the blocks is mostly binary equal.
     (PI80955 at 13.1)
    
    -AT ENTRY not honored for HOGAN Sort exit.
     (PI86162 at 13.1)
    
    -ABENDS0C1 in Debug Tool module EQARCL4, entry point name
     dtDbgExprCopyMemory (Module EQARCL4+'66BA8'x), when debugging
     a Cobol 5.2 batch program.
     (PI84188 at 13.1)
    
    -Debug Tool CICS SOS using Debug Tool showing 46 large near
     identical storage heap blocks (HANC).
    
     The problem is caused by fragmented memory.  Most of the large
     heap segments show less than 2% allocated.
     (PI82875 at 13.1)
    
    -Load Module Analyzer does not set the first operand of LEINFO
     properly for COBOL V5 and V6.
    
    -The IMS Tranaction Isolation Facility DFSMSCE0 exit is causing
     ABENDS478 when IMS is stopped, indicated by "IMS CTL TCB
     ABEND-SYS 478".
     (PI85625 at 13.1)
    
    -An ABENDS0C4 in module EQALMA+'4D1C'x is received when running
     the Load Module Analyzer.  This intermittent abend can occur
     when processing an ENTRY vs a CSECT.
     (PI86554 at 13.1)
    
    -In IBM Developer for z Systems (IDz) v14.0, a debug session
     does not start when Debug Tool Compatibility Mode is enabled.
     The JCL to start the debug session includes DBMDT TEST runtime
     parameter as you can see in the following example:
    
     TEST(ALL,,PROMPT,DBMDT:*)
     (PI84097 at 14.0)
    
    -Program Check at EQA0SRQ1+'207C'x in remote debug session when
     a Find is done after returning from a CALL.
     (PI86495 at 13.1)
    
    -The Load Module Analyzer is not showing all CSECTs when the
     result is sorted by Name (SORTBY=NAME).
     (PI86687 at 14.0)
    
    -SOS in CICS when Debug Tool started in remote and a watch
     breakpoint is active.
     (PI86881 at 13.1)
    
    -ABENDS138 CICS AKEB when 2 CICS users start a Debug Tool
     session at the same time with STARTSTOPMSGDSN setup active.
     (PI86946 at 13.1)
    
    -ABENDS0C6 when a Debug Tool step command is performed on LRL
     or STRL assembler instruction.
     (PI87220 at 12.1)
    
    -LIST TITLED WSS command fails when the Working Storage Section
     contains "01." with no name.
     (PI85007 at 14.0)
    
    -IMS Tranaction Isolation Facility updates:
     - LINK simulation no longer filters out IMS IVPs.
     - CEEOPTS data sets are now read and included as part of the
       inline CEEOPTS DD in the private MPR.
    
    -No account information generated in Debug Tool IMS Tranaction
     Isolation Facility JCL card which leads to a JCL error.
     (PI87454 at 13.1)
    
    -ABENDS01F when debugging HOGAN on system with BMC DL/I
     Optimizer active.
     (PI87997 at 13.1)
    
    -+EQA9993I - EQA00OHT: Failed to set hook on instructions with
     "CC" opcode in R/O storage with RACF facility defined.
