MQGem Monthly Banner

Welcome to the July edition of the MQGem Monthly Newsletter, bringing you company news from MQGem Software, information about the MO71, MQSCX, MQEdit, MQEV, Q and QLOAD products, our IBM MQ training modules, and interesting articles about IBM MQ.


IBM announced and released MQ for z/OS V9.3.0 this month.

IBM announced the new MQAppliance M2003 which will come pre-loaded with IBM MQ V9.3.

We have updated our post about the V9.3 release here, and will continue to add to the list as more are published by Hursley.

A minor update to MQEV and MQSCX was released at the start of the month to support IBM MQ V9.3.

Further minor updates were made to MO71, MQSCX and MQEV later in the month to support IBM MQ for z/OS V9.3.

A minor update was made to Q to allow two small features, setting ApplName, and wrapping text when outputting it to a file.

With the new IBM MQ and MQ Appliance announcements and releases, there are two new Webinars coming up in August all about these. See the Upcoming Online Events section.
