z/OS Explorer, CICS Explorer, and CICS tools plug-ins release compatibility reference tables

How do you find out which release of IBM Explorer for z/OS (z/OS Explorer) and CICS tools plug-ins for CICS Explorer are compatible with the different releases of CICS Explorer? How do you know what release of the Eclipse SDK is required for your release of z/OS Explorer and CICS Explorer?

Using the CICS TS information center

How do you search, set a search scope, display the topic in the table of contents, or print a topic in the CICS Transaction Server for z/OS (CICS TS) information center?

Specifying a larger value for MAXSOCKETS than MXT in the CICS SIT

Since the maximum task specification (MXT) limits the number of active user tasks you can have in a CICS Transaction Server for z/OS (CICS TS) region, why would you want to specify the maximum number of ip sockets (MAXSOCKETS) as a higher value than MXT? Should you specify a value for MAXSOCKETS more like TCLASS, that is as a 'subset' of MXT?
