New Version 9.6 of Rational Developer for i (RDi) announced. It has lots of minor tweaks and a couple of major tweaks and at least one #NICKLITTENAPPROVED tweak (now we can press ENTER to split code lines).
CAVEAT EMPTOR: IBM announced it and then said ‘it wont be available until November 16 2017 in Passport Advantage’. Cheeky Buggers are just doing that tease us.
So, nothing gob-smacking but lots of cool tweaks.
For me, the quietly mentioned “pressing ENTER splits the source” is a huge productivity change. This always bugged me 🙂
Rather annoyingly upgrading from V9.5 to V9.6 means a full download and reinstall rather than just clicking update.
It is a new release so you will need to install it (you can not ‘update’ to it). There are new license activation kits. For full details click here
