WebSphere MQ planned maintenance release dates

Product documentation


Abstract

The purpose of this Web page is to publish the planned maintenance availability dates for the WebSphere MQ family of products. These dates are guidelines highlighting when future maintenance should be released to enable customers to plan maintenance upgrades to their machines.

These published dates are subject to change. IBM intends to keep this Web page current and modify it 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.
