NetRexx 3.09 GA released today

In anticipation of Jeff Hennick’s talk at the 2020 International Rexx Language Symposium later today, NetRexx 3.09 GA has been released at .
This is no coincidence, as Jeff did an enormous amount of work on the Pipelines component - which can now be seen as on par with the VM/CMS implementation.
Also, Colin K. delivered the ‘hostbyname’ stage which fills an important void in networking support.

From the release notes:
