Informix V14.10.xC2 Editions offer extended Limits
Informix Release 14.10.xC2 of September 2019
For the Informix Developer, Informix Express and Informix Innovator-C Editions, IBM increases CPU and memory usage limits with release 14.10xC2.
The increase makes Informix even more attractive for small and medium-size applications.
The upgrade was made without a special announcement - through changes in the license terms with the release of Informix 14.10.xC2.
Customers who upgrade to this version with a new license or an update as part of their product maintenance, will benefit from the enhancements. The extensions do not apply to older releases, also because the limits are fixed in the source.

Informix 14.10 - Client-SDK support for 32-bit applications
Many applications based on Informix have two things in common: existential importance for the company and exceptionally long periods of use. It is not surprising that many long-established solutions are available as 32-bit versions.
With the introduction of Informix 14.10 in April 2019 and the current Client-SDK 4.5, HCL and IBM no longer offer 32-bit portings for the new versions.
For software engineering reasons, many 32-bit applications can only be ported to 64-bit with great effort. Will these applications not be able to run on Informix 14.10 in the future?
The main question is, will 32-bit applications continue to be supported, and if so, for how long?
CURSOR recognized this problem early and pointed out the need for a solution to IBM and HCL.
