Now that the r19.0 Incremental Release program is complete, is it necessary to download and apply the newly announced “GA COMPLETE” package?
The r19.0 Incremental Release program is complete, and r19.0 GA has been announced and is available. See RI91497:-
“GA COMPLETE” is just a singular packaging of all of the r19.0 APARs up to July 15, 2016. The APARs are also documented in RI91497 above.
Other than the level of APARs applied, there is no difference between the Incremental Releases that have been made available and the GA COMPETE pax.Z file.
Whether or not you choose to download and upgrade to the GA COMPLETE package would depend upon how many APARs you have applied during the IR program.
