@Alan Kirk can you provide a Fispack List for Planing Analytics also ?
There is a Fix Pack Releases thread for every version; you will find it in the FAQ under the heading Hotfix Threads, Containing Details of Hotfix / Fixpack Releases.

Only ones which have new information (within the last 30 to 60 days) are stickied at the top. For all of the others, just go through the FAQ to find them.

And speaking about new information...

End Of Life on both 10.2.0 and 10.2.2
For those who missed it, two announcements came out yesterday.
10.2.0 ends its life on 30 September 2018.
10.2.2 ends its life one year later on 30 September 2019.

Editorialising
I know that 30 September 2019 sounds a long way off, a smidge over 2 years away, but I still think that this announcement is premature. At the Cubewise TM1 conference last month some people who who have gone to PAL 2.0 told of their experiences in installing it and getting it running. The underlying theme seemed to be "train wreck". I absolutely do not think that IBM should be talking about pulling 10.2.2 until such time as PAL 2.0 installation "just works"[1] and right now we are so far away from that point that it's just ridiculous to be talking about sunsetting a relatively stable version.

[1] And let's not get started on how far PAL itself and PAX and PAW in particular are from that paradigm too...

IMPORTANT: There has been a change in the data structure in 10.2.2 FP7 IF5. The effect is that if you apply that interim fix or higher you can no longer downgrade to an earlier version. Details can be found here.

Not sure if others have noticed this but a defect notice for FP7 IF5 in IBM's notifications last week

There are some security vulnerabilities in Java (I'll bet you've never heard those words before) which gave rise to a couple of new Interim Fix packs for 10.2.0 and 10.2.2 FP7. Links to the relevant pages are in the main post.
