Add availability info (version/release/TR) to Info Center

Please add availability info to RPGLE BIFs, SQL functions/procedures, catalog views and IBM i services (like table functions, etc.).


Some information like: Available since 7.3 TR 2 and 7.4


This would make it easy to check backward compatibility.

    The CEAC has reviewed this requirement and recommends that IBM view this as a /nice to have" low priority feature.

    It would take a lot of work to implment this for past enahncements - however they suggested to to consider this idea for future changes / enhancements.

    This is a nice to have, but there is Information available elsewhere (such as the IBM i SQL services page)
