I need to integrate with IBM CICS 5.5 (Transaction Server 5.5). It looks like you only support  IBM CICS 5.4. When will support for 5.5 be available and can we use BizTalk Server 2016 and HIS adapter to call CICS 5.5 (Transaction Server 5.5)?

We have not yet tested HIS 2020 with CICS 5.5.  We do not know of any issue with CICS 5.5 and customers are welcome to test with it.  We will do a commercially reasonable effort to investigate any issue. We hope to have the release tested in the next few months.
