Is IBM i 7.3 already out?

I was looking for the latest PTFs for IBM i 7.2 TR3 when I found SE6395 for the RPG compiler. What caught my attention was not the fact that this was an APAR for fully free RPG, it was the releases, see below.

Does this mean that there are already PowerSystems servers running IBM i release 7.3 out there? Perhaps there are a few out there in the user community testing a new release. It begs the question: could this mean that a new release is imminent? We will just have to wait and see what 2016 brings.

You can see the page for this APAR on the IBM web site here.


  1. Hi, now the apar show only 7.1 and 7.2

  2. Just mean IBM is monitoring the blog ;)
