HP Basic - New Releases and Patches.

Question: Is there a simple way to determine whether there is a new release, or new patches for a layered product such as HP BASIC.

I am currently running Version 1.6, and the SPD list 1.6, however the SPD is dated Sep 2006. Is the SPD the authoratative answer?

I know that BASRTL patches are released as OpenVMS Patches. Are there any other sources for BASIC patches that I should watch?

Are new releases of BASIC "announced"?

Thanks

Dave.

Some of the information is available at the SPL site without a login.

You might be able to subscribe to notifications with a service agreement. I still haven't been able to find that out yet.
