Additional Information
About Update 27

Update 27 will rename a group of ILE shells in GN#FLES and GN#GLES. The renamed shells will be changed to OL#PGx etc. The full list of replaced shell members is listed below.


Each Designer ID references a shell source library. The default library will be GN#LIB. If you have changed the referenced library for this parameter it will be necessary to replace the shell source file GN#FLES in this library with the current version of this file shipped with this update. Optionally you may wish to change this library reference back to GN#LIB. You can verify if any of your Designers are referencing different versions of the shells using option 2 from the list of designers presented by the ZWRKDSN command.

Note that if you have made custom modifications to the shells prior to this update, you will need to reapply these changes to your new shell members. Use SEU to scan the shell source members for change dates to help with this process.
