T2S Release R2024.FEB – Scope

Based on the T2S status reporting of 16 January 2024, for T2S Release R2024.FEB 33 Problem Tickets have been scheduled for a delivery in production. CBF’s assessment of all Problem Tickets shows that the fixes will not require any changes in CBF’s software. CBF clients operating in DCP mode can be affected by nine PBIs. CBF recommends clients to check the attached list of the PBIs affecting them. The Problem Ticket 227729 has no impact on clients acting in ICP mode because CBF does not process T2S semt.018 messages.

The experience from previous T2S releases shows that additional tickets can be prioritised and authorised for implementation by the T2S Operational Managers Group (OMG) in the upcoming weeks

T2S Release R2024.FEB – Transition plan

According to the T2S Release Concept, the deployment of T2S Release R2024.FEB into production will occur for business day Monday, 19 February 2024. The implementation of the software will take place during the weekend’s T2S maintenance window.
