The effective withdrawal date for i5/OS® V5R4, additional selected programs, and features, as announced in Software withdrawal 909-003, dated January 27, 2009, is extended from January 5, 2010, to January 7, 2011.

You probably think that is a completely useless nugget of information… but for my main client, running a twenty year old heavily bespoke ERP application on the i, missing the main product source code and unable to recompile and hence upgrade to version 6: It’s fairly important.

Hardly something to blog about… but then again… :bignosewink:
