    Yes, it is true: the elves at the Toronto Lab have given us an early Christmas present and, best of all, you can unwrap it and play with it right now, as long as you are running V7.2 or 7.3 anyway.

    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.

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.
