    Got Any IBM i Enhancement Ideas?

    We've written before about the RFE (Request for Enhancement) process specifically for RDi. It's a simple way for RDi users like us to make suggestions for product improvements and cast votes for suggestions made by others. The process has been proven to work. All the recent releases of RDi listed the RFEs that were implemented. Of course, just because you think a suggestion is great and even if it has a respectable number of votes, it still may take a while to be implemented. For example, we still have our fingers crossed for the RDi RFE that has been at the top of our personal favorites list for a long time now - to be able to run RDi natively on our Macs.

    Is There Anything RPG in IBM i 7.3?

    The IBM i 7.3 announcement may seem to have arrived a little earlier than expected. The interval between 7.1 and 7.2 was four years so you may not have been expecting a new release just yet. So for you RPG developers out there, the question is: What’s in 7.3 for me?

    RPG IV and the Biebs

    Back in April we blogged about RPG IV's 21st birthday. Subsequently we celebrated with birthday cake, champagne, and party favors at the RPG & DB2 Summit in October. During that celebration we posed a number of RPG IV trivia questions to the attendees. Since it is one of our family traditions to play silly trivia games at Christmas we thought we'd pose those questions to our readers! We often enjoy frustrating ourselves trying to answer the Tuesday Trivia questions from Ken Jennings's (big Jeopardy winner until Watson came along…)
