IBM MQ V9 LTS FixPack 1

IBM recently shipped the first Fix Pack for the V9.0.0 Long Term Support (LTS) release.

Downloading IBM MQ Version

Spotted by one of our eagle-eyed followers, this document indicates:-

IBM MQ Version 9.0.0, Fix Pack 1 is released only on AIX, IBMi, Linux, and Windows. It is not released on HP-UX or Solaris.

EDIT: Fix Pack 1 is now available on HP-UX on Itanium, Solaris on SPARC, and Solaris on x86 64 as of 15 June 2017. Download from the above link.

We asked IBM why this was the case, and here is the answer. was not shipped on HP-UX and Solaris due to an ongoing quality issue in the JVM on those platforms. We expect 9.0.0 LTS maintenance to be available on these platforms in the future. For more info [on the JVM quality issue on those platforms], head here: Oracle Bug Report: JDK-8175251 : Failed to load RSA private key from pkcs12.
