As some may know there is some renewed activity concerning the attempt to get TK3UPD out of BETA status.
Posts in h390.mvs concerning a modification to SORT to enable use of 3350 and 3390 DASD . That has not been without it's problems and full use of DASD more modern than 2314 has been limited by the design of the original sort programs. Even so, DASD sort capacity and LRECL size have been increased by quite a bit.
Other items that I am also wanting to incorporate or am waiting on :
Feedback ( some already received ) from saucyjacks work with JES3 and CTC enabling ( some Herc mods required - not necessarily a show stopper ) between 2 MVS instances.
MP working properly ( Herc fixes ) and/or ZAP but leaving with excessive CPU looping ( not my favorite idea ).
Clean up/fix of BRODCAST, LOGREC, a couple of JES2 and JES3 datasets.
Adding some HELP info, perhaps some additional Documentation as well.
Some other assorted items.
The down side is there are still real life demands which will take their toll time wise, emotionally and mentally for some unknowable period of time.
Therefore there is no time line for release of anything.
