+ In the datafile tag, “parseCompilesysout” action supports a filetype=”ibmpli” for PL1 compilation sysout parsing.


+ Properties action automatically fires a Refresh if fields are unknown (***ND***).
+ Files opened by Z/Navigator are tagged with a decoration in Navigator view.

Commands view

+ Commands can be run in non-blocking mode depending on the value of “sync” attribute.
!!! Note: this feature is in experimental status and requires a validation at a large scale !!!
+ Multiple commands can be run at a time on the same mainframe by the same user.
+ Cancel action is effective and kills properly the running command.
+ Allocation of non-shared mainframe resources must be managed by the script itself – mxw_ispf for instance.
