Blog Post created by SteveSolomon Employee on Sep 27, 2016

Dear CA Gen EDGE Community,


As some of you have been aware I have been out of the office for several weeks.  Which means that I am behind on reviewing your post in the Community and working on the wonderful Ideas that have been submitted. The very good news is that the CA Gen Engineering team has been very busy and has great news to report.


IBM COBOL 6.1 has been certified for CA Gen Release 8.5 and 8.6.  Please see Teresa's posting on IBM COBOL 6.1 at COBOL 6.1 Certification 


Solaris 10 certification for CA Gen Releases 8.5 and 8.6 is complete.  There had to be changes in both releases to support Solaris 10.  A new version of both releases has been posted on CA Support.  If you are planning to use Solaris 10 please be sure to download the new release from CA Support. 


Windows 10 certification for CA Gen 8.5 is almost complete.  We found some issues when testing Windows 10 with CA Gen Release 8.6 and we found the same issues with Release 8.5.  We are in the process of preparing and testing a PTF that you will need to download and apply to Release 8.5.  Hopefully we will not find any other issues and the PTF will soon be on Support. 


It is important to note that the Microsoft Edge Browser is not included in the Windows 10 certification.   Our analysis of the Edge Browser is that certification will require changes and be a fairly extensive project.  If Edge support is critical to your organization please let me know and I will add you to the Beta tester list. 


I hope everyone had a great Summer.  Fall has arrived in Arizona and it is a great time of year.  Which also means that CA Technologies is working hard to put on a great CA World in November.  If you will be attending CA World please drop me an email and let me know.  Several members of the CA Gen EDGE community will be there and we would like to be sure everyone gets invited to our meetups.
