HP Tru64 UNIX® Software Products Library

May 2010 – Final Release




Welcome to this quarter's Tru64 UNIX Software Products Library Package

End of Software Products Library Shipments

While HP is committed to provide support for HP Tru64 UNIX at minimum until end of 2012, there are no further updates planned for the software products covered by this package.

Therefore, this is the last shipment of the Tru64 UNIX Software Product Library and the Tru64 UNIX Online Documentation Library Packages.

We recommend our customers to keep the media safe to have easy access to the included Software Products in the future. In case replacement media is required, it will be possible to order a package using the current product number QA-054AA-H8.

In addition to the physical media, customers will also be able to download equivalent content from the Software Product Library Website, using the instructions listed below.
The content will be available for download until
November 30, 2011.

Please note that updates to the HP Tru64 UNIX Operating System are not affected by this announcement and will be published and distributed as usual.
