Current DB2 Fixpacks

The year is still young, but I already had a business trip last week. When looking at/after your systems, planning new ones, or just teaching or discussing DB2, it is good to know where we are in current fixpack levels.

The page "DB2 Fix Packs by version for DB2 for Linux, UNIX, and Windows" lists all of them from version 8.2 to 9.8. As today, DB2 9.5 is at FP7 (released December 13th, 2010), DB2 9.7 at FP3a (released October 20th, 2010), and DB2 9.8 (this is the pureScale feature) is at FP3 (released December 17th, 2010). As you can see, two fixpacks for the recent DB2 versions came out just before the holidays.
