I see about 19 presentations there that address V9.

Get the presentations from the IOD conference. There were about 20
presentations there, and most are on the conference web site and on the
recently shipped CD. Thiss option means knowing someone who was there.

When I am asked about DB2 9 for z/OS GA, the first answer is "When it's
ready." Our first job is making sure the product is solid at GA, so the
date will move to achieve the first objective. We expect the date to be
sometime in the first half of 2007, but I don't write that down. "When
it's ready." is the real answer. When we know, we will have an
announcement.
