IBM Connections 5 CR3 released

Hi all,

today IBM released IBM Connections 5 CR3.

  • The CR can be downloaded here
  • The fix list can be found here
  • Database updates are mandatory. The scripts can be found here
  • IBM offers a step-by-step installation document as in the previous versions. Great IBM!!! Thanks a lot 😉
  • This is the general update strategy document


With CR3, IBM also recommends installing WAS 8.5.5 FP4 (minimum is 8.5.5 FP2).

DB2 is (since CR2) supported in version 10.5 FP4.

For Filenet you should install the newest fixes as shown here

Have a look at the Filenet update document for the version you need to download.

Seems there is not yet a new features document available. It is possible that this CR3 only corrects errors but does not introduce new features. I will have a look at the environment after I`ve installed CR3 in my test environment. Stay tuned 😉
