Calories don’t count if festivals are around the corner, right? And the end of the year is time for feasting, so leave room for seconds! 

Now serving your first Continuous Delivery (CD) update for IBM Application Delivery Foundation for z/OS (ADFz). In September, we released ADFz 3.2, starting the 3.2 release stream with our signature dish of Day One support for z15 accompanied by integrated DevOps toolchain enhancements. We continue with ADFz 3.2.1, released December 6. 2019, where the main feature was shift left testing, accompanied by ongoing delivery of customer requirements.

We'd like to dedicate this special treat to all the developers across the globe. This will be our last release of the year until we are back in 2020, as always with a bang! 

Here are some highlights from ADFz 3.2.1
