Abstract

Here are the planned maintenance availability dates for the IBM MQ family of products. These dates are guidelines as to when future maintenance should be released, to help you to plan maintenance upgrades to your machines.

These published dates are subject to change. IBM updates this page as soon as any changes to release dates are known. You should periodically check this page so that you are aware of any changes.

If you need to find out which maintenance delivery an APAR (code fix) is targeted for, you should speak to your IBM Service representative.
