XU*8.0*10006T4Samuel Habiel12-30-2019This release fixes two critical bugs found by David Whitten, plus various miscellaneous bugs. There are two enhancements: Addition of KILLJOB^ZSY, an
interactive way to kill jobs from ZSY for use by ^%ZOSF("RESJOB"), and update of ZOSFGUX to mirror the updates of ZOSFONT in patch *661.
XU*8.0*10005T1Samuel Habiel01-16-2019Level 3*10005: $$BL and $$BE^%ZOSV for UTF-8 support, $$ENV^%ZOSV to get an environment variable from the OS, XPDUTL patch support to 10 digit patch numbers (overlay XU*8.0*672)
XU*8.0*10005T1Samuel Habiel01-16-2019Patch *10005: UTF-8 Support, $$ENV^%ZOSV, bug fixes
XU*8.0*10004T2Samuel Habiel10-23-2018Level 4Bug fix release:

Bugs are fixed in ZSY, ZOSVGUX, ZISHGUX, and XPDUTL.

See fixes in release notes @
XU*.0*10002T7Samuel Habiel06-07-2018Level 2%ZISH enhancements for Cache to support PSN*4.0*10001
XU*8.0*10002Samuel Habiel05-03-2018This release adds RPMS entry points to ZISHGUX and $$MKDIR, $$SIZE, and $$WGETSYNC^%ZISH for use by PSN*4.0*513. This release also puts the first nail in the coffin of XUSCNT by decommissioning the counting algorithm and using $$^%PEEKBYNAME("node_local.ref_cnt","DEFAULT"). Good riddance! This work will need to continue to purge VistA/RPMS from using XUSCNT. Minor bug fixes in ZOSVGUX.

ZSY has gotten a lot of new features, including an option to examine currently running jobs. More details in the change log below.
T13-FINAL FINALSamuel Habiel11-29-2017Level 3ZTLOAD1 contained test code for the Panorama Framework that was not supposed to be there (call to ^ZTNOTIF). That has been removed. The issue was only in the KIDS build; and the repo itself were not affected.
Still T12Samuel Habiel11-13-2017I forgot to push my changes to Github for some of the documentation.
T12-Really really finalSamuel Habiel10-30-2017No GT.M/YottaDB related changes. Readacted code in XUSHSH for Cache is now fully reconstructed. Same XUSHSH will work on both GTM/YDB and Cache.
T11-FinalSamuel Habiel10-30-2017This revision provides the final code - which is T11.
