Fall 2023 TRs announced

Today is the day that IBM has announced the Fall 2023 Technology Refreshes for the currently supported releases of IBM i, 7.5 TR3 and 7.4 TR9.

All the information about the TRs can be found on IBM website on the following on the following pages in IBM's websites:

The planned availability date for the TRs's PTFs in November 17, 2023, with the exception of those for the PowerHA SystemMirror for i which will be made available on December 15, 2023.
