Today's set of announcements for both IBM i 7.1 Technology Refresh 9 and IBM i 7.2 Technology Refresh 1 are pretty cool. What you have to remember is that most updates for IBM i 7.2 TR1 are included in IBM i 7.1 TR9. More details will follow. From what I understand, everything I'm writing about today is included in both TRs.
