IBM has made the beta release of CICS/TS 4.1 available at no charge. In it, we are promised the uncut version of CICS Explorer. Originally released in a SupportPac with the update options grayed out, CICS Explorer in the CICS/TS 4.1 beta is said to have all of those options available. John Knutson, IBM Marketing Manager, reports that the full CICS Explorer will be available for version 3 in a future SupportPac.
If you are interested in CICS/TS 4.1, I would encourage you to check out the free beta. And also take the poll on my site!
4/2/2009 Update: The beta software will expire on July 31, 2009. The last beta required re-installation when the product went GA, so I presume this beta will be the same. If you can’t or do not want to install the beta, but you do want to follow what problems and questions people are encountering, visit the forum that IBM has set up for comments and feedback.
