Welcome to this quarter's OpenVMS Alpha Software Products Library Package.  

End of Software Products Library Shipments

While HPE is committed to provide ongoing support for HPE OpenVMS for Alpha,
as outlined at 
http://h20565.www2.hpe.com/hpsc/doc/public/display?docId=emr_na-c04623087,
the next release of the OpenVMS Alpha Software Products Library Package,
planned for December 2016, will be the last one.

There will be no further updates for the software products covered by this
package after the December 2016 release.

HPE recommends that you keep the December 2016 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 via the HPESC Portal
located at https://h20575.www2.hpe.com/tsusbportal/index.do.

In addition to the physical media, customers will also be able to download
equivalent content from the Software Products Library website, using the
instructions listed below. 

Please note that updates to the HPE OpenVMS Alpha Operating System are not
affected by this announcement and will be published and distributed as usual.
