Bug Fixes and Testing Impact
From the Bug Fixes in the Release Notes, the one that jumps out as a potential target for regression tests is this one:
LI77051: DATABASE CONNECTOR ACTIVITES ARE UPDATING DATABASE WITH GMT TIME IRRESPECTIVE OF TIME ZONE SET ON APPLIANCE
Based on the details noted, it appears that some users using the database connector may experience a change in the way times are stored in the database. This is likely database specific and would only impact users if their appliance timezone is not set to GMT.
New Feature Highlights
Here's the short list of new features, we'll dig deeper into some of the new features in later posts:
- REST and JSON Support: Long awaited support for JSON and expanded suport for RESTful web services in the HTTP connector. See this post for more details.

- New Connector Activities: HTTP, JDE, SAP, and PeopleSoft connectors have new activities.
Update: IBM has Issued an Alert for this release due to a critical issue in which the WIP partition could fill up and prevent the appliance from operating normally. See the Alert from IBM for further instructions should this happen to your appliance.
