Embedded OS
The embedded OS does not support patches, only release levels.

Latest Release: 4.52
Patch Level: N/A
Release Date: December 2001

The RI System Software works with OS/2 Warp 4.52. Systems shipped with OS/2 should use OS/2 4.52 and NOT upgrade to eComStation.
Note: IBM stopped supporting OS/2 Dec 2006. [More Information]
Note about IT Security: OS/2 has very few native computer viruses; while it is not invulnerable by design, its reduced market share appears to have discouraged virus writers. There are, however, OS/2-based antivirus programs, dealing with DOS viruses and Windows viruses that could pass through an OS/2 server. The RI System controller has reduced exposure due to being deployed behind corporate firewalls and on production floors with limited internet access. For concerns about malware and virus prevention, see RI System Software - Security and Anti-Virus document.

Latest Release: 2.1
Patch Level: N/A
Release Date: May 2011
Version 2.1 "Whats New"

The RI System Software supports ALL versions of eComStation. Systems shipped with eComStation should use the version of eComStation that shipped with the system.
