Latest Db2 and RPG TR PTFs out today

Today the PTFs for Db2 (SQL) and RPG are released for the latest Technology Refreshes, IBM i 7.5 TR2 and 7.4 TR8.

The base operating system PTFs for these TRs became available on the May 8, 2023, but they did not include any of the changes and enhancements to Db2/Database or RPG.

More information about these PTFs can be foubd here.

The links to all the Group PTFs for the currently supported releases of IBM i can be found on this page.

Today I'll be making a request of RZKH to load all of these PTFs on to the IBM i partition I use to write the content for this blog.
