VMS732_UAF-V0100 weirdness

There is something strange with this ECO.

First I got the notification that it should be available in 24 hours (thanks to OpenVMS.org). Next it took about ten days to appear on ITRC.
Now I have installed it on my test system and it appears that the new AUTHORIZE.EXE image is about 17 months old!

It took a lot of testing to get that one out!

Anyone care to comment?

Regards,

Bart Zorn

Bart,

this problem seems to have already been fixed some time ago (it's fixed in V8.2) and it may not have been thought necessary to ship a new kit with this fix (if no customer raises a call to HP VMS engineering).

The problem itself has been recently discussed in ITRC, see:

http://forums1.itrc.hp.com/service/forums/questionanswer.do?threadId=957014

The report of this problem to HP (not necessarily the discussion of the problem in ITRC, but the actual service-call to HP and the subsequent escalation to OpenVMS engineering) may have triggered the release of this ECO kit. That's how it works for non-critical problems...

Volker.
