Fixpak 5  for Convenience Pack 1 & 2 (ACP and MCP) and eComStation

Development reached Fixpak 6 (XR_C006), but remained in the testing phase and was never officially published.

In 2000/2001, Serenity System Inc. (now an Arca Noae LLC company), signed an agreement with International Business Machine (IBM) to market a new product based on the latest kernel of OS/2, available as a client and server edition (MCP2/ACP2), later also joined by Mensys BV (then XEU BV).

The product was called eComStation (eCS), whose acronym initially meant "electronic Communication Station", later just "e-Commerce Station".

The acronym indeed was referring to impressive list of network protocols supported by OS/2 since 1996 and that allowed the operating system to connect virtually to any type of network using any communication protocol!

eComStation is now at Ver. 2.2 (beta stage, unreleased) and is currently being developed and marketed.

Between 2014 and 2015, Arca Noae LLC too has reached an agreement with International Business Machine (IBM) to deliver and marketing a new version of OS/2 Warp based on MCP2 (ver. 4:52) and Kernel SMP (Symmetric Multi-Processing, which is a kernel capable to balance the operating system workload efficiently and symmetric between one or more multiprocessor cores, like the latest CPU are).
