"At Macro 4 we've introduced support for V6.1 in our new software releases, to enable a smooth upgrade for our customers. We always make it a priority to ensure our mainframe fault analysis, testing and debugging and performance management tools support the latest operating software and subsystems - for example we also provide support for z/OS V2.2, IMS V14, DB2 11 for z/OS, and CICS TS for z/OS V5.3."
