Now that the Zend Server 6.0 is out for other platforms.

Hi Timo

Hope this helps

Hi Timo

I've heard that IBM i 7.1 TR6 includes Zend Server 6, which is now available from Fix Central.

Hope this helps.

Zend Server for IBM i is NOT available ANYWHERE at this time. We have not released it yet so please be careful of anyone claiming to have ZS6. It will be released in April ... stay tuned for details.

My info was taken from the IBM announcement;

Think you need to tell IBM then :-)

The Technology Refresh was an announcement of capabilities that are both available (for the core OS) or will be available in the future (Zend Server and maybe other stuff I'm not 100% sure). In this case the Zend Server release in not part of anything that can be downloaded at this time.

That's not how the document reads. It shows all features that are available in that release, not future ones.

As stated - Zend Server for IBM i Version 6 supports the development of mobile applications as well as providing capabilities for application awareness, auditing, and authentication.

The availability of TR6 was February 26, 2013

Further down in the same announcement, it spells out that most of TR6 (the parts unrelated to hardware) won't be available until at least March 15:
Software requirements

IBM i 7.1 Technology Refresh PTF Group Level 6 will be available on February 13, 2013, for the hardware support enhancements in this announcement. Note that some of the systems and hardware features will be generally available after February. IBM i 6.1 support for the hardware support enhancements in this announcement will be generally available on March 8, 2013. See the developerWorks hardware topic for details about specific general availability dates

http://www.ibm.com/developerworks/ibmi/techupdates/hw

March 15, 2013: All other IBM i 7.1 TR6 Enhancements will be available as PTF updates. Refer to the URL references in the Description section for details.
Clear as mud.
