The main features of the release are as follows:-
Improvements to Column Filters
Following on from version 9.0.5, when column filters were first introduced, this version improves them for integer values which are now shown as a selectable list of values in use.
You can configure MO71 to display a panel of information either when MO71 initially starts or when a user connects to a Queue Manager. This allows a central MQ Administration department to disseminate information to MO71 users. For example, tell them about Queue Manager ownership, status or maintenance schedules.
IBM MQ Fix Pack check
MO71 can now check for the latest available MQ fix pack levels and help to inform you that a later fix pack is available for a particular Queue Manager. Read more in IBM MQ Maintenance level checking with MO71
MO71 Update notification
MO71 can now check and notify you if there is a later version of MO71 available for you.
Import from another MO71 Configuration File
You can now import location definitions from another, central, MO71 configuration file. Not only that but you can ask MO71 to merge any definitions from this file into the local configuration each time it starts.
Another feature which makes central administration a little easier. You can configure MO71 to run a command if the licence file is either not present or due to expire soon. This enables you to automatically copy or FTP a new licence file from a central location without the end user needing to do anything.
The new version can be downloaded from the MO71 Download Page. Any current licensed users of MO71 can run the new version on their existing licence. If you don’t have a licence and would like to try out MO71 then send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and a 1-month trial licence will be sent to you.
