How can I upgrade Turnover V100 iSeries Client?

IBM i

Sep 29

Turnover (from Soft Landings Inc) is a pretty cool Software Change Management system running on iseries IBM i.

Arguably its best in class and certainly my preferred SCM tool. Saying that, the old 5250 (green screen) functions are frustratingly lacking in some areas where the company has obviously decided to only focus continued development on its Windows client – Turnover for iSeries.

when does iseries become IBMi

UNICOM you #numpties! It’s not Turnover for iSeries, its Turnover for IBM-i! Would you sell a Windows package and sell it as Turnover for DOS or maybe Turnover/XP?

But, the Windows client is based on the Eclipse IDE and its pretty neat. It’s regularly updated, but you need to know how to grab the very latest updates. So here you go.

I recorded this little screen cast with the excellent freebie JING from Techsmith but didn’t record any sound… because I am huddled in a super quiet little Dilbert cubicle and it may have awoken my fellow programmers.

The important piece is this URL – http://support.softlanding.com/t100client/2012Q2/

Obviously you can amend the final characters to read the previous quarter – of your current timeframe – to grab the most recent updates:

 

Basically, its WINDOW | PREFERENCES | INSTALL UPDATE | AVAILABLE SOFTWARE SITES | EDIT and paste in that URL

tada!
