    This book is one of a series of IBM Redbooks that take a modular approach to providing information about the updates that are included with z/OS V2R2. This approach has the following goals:

    - Provide modular content

    - Group the technical changes into a topic

    - Provide a more streamlined way of finding relevant information that is based on the topic

    We hope you find this approach useful and we welcome your feedback.
