Request for servicelog update from current, validated version (1.0.1) to latest available, 1.1.7,
available from .
v1.1.x introduced a merged API, combining that of the 0.2.9 and 1.0 API's. This merged API was
requested by IBM Director, and in effect the 1.1.x version is required by all RHEL6 customers who
will be using IBM Director.
IBM is signed up to test and provide feedback.
OK, I will add it.
Bill, please add to comps when you get a chance.
Added to comps.
Planned for release in snapshot 6
