Here are some links for you:


The brief installation directions are in the tarballs' README file.

Our operating specific hints are at
but none for AIX.

We don't have a migration guide specific for 9.8 series (we do have a 
migration details from 8 to 9). I'd expect that all the configurations 
from 9.8.1 through 9.8.6 are compatible.  The 9.8.6 reference is at 
(and in the tarball).

I am working on a chart listing the major features introduces
and any incompatible changes to be aware of for all of our releases. But 
it is not ready yet.
