4) RFE Corner

IBM has created a new RFE – Request For Enhancements website.

https://ibm-data-and-ai.ideas.aha.io/ideas/search?page=5&project=INFX&query=informix&utf8=%E2%9C%93

Please visit this site to vote for your favorite enhancements or a place new request.

As you can see, it is a new RFE site. I find it much less friendly than the previous one. The RFEs are displayed in random order with no sorting capability. You can only filter by status. But, you can still submit a request. You can only track an existing request by browsing through all the requests page by page.

One of the worst user interfaces I have ever seen. Why take something good and make it worse?

I guess only IBM can answer this question.

5) Informix Corner

5.1 New Informix forum

We have a new Informix forum hosted on the IBM community site. Go there for Informix related information. Join the community and post on it.

It is cool and it makes Informix part of a large IBM user community.

So it is exiting news.

Start using it here. Or you can also get there from www.iiug.org/community.
