IBM has been working on z/OS recently, because it is a relatively
new product, and naturally there was an upgrade announcement as a
result of that work.
It doesn't imply or suggest anything about their other PL/I compilers,
which have been on the market for a number of years, and are now
robust complers. They do not need as frequent updates as the new
compiler on z/OS.
