The deployment of v3.9 of the Red Hat Mobile Application Platform will begin for actively updated Grids on March 29th. It may take up to a week for all Grids to be updated.
There may be a period of several minutes during the deployment where your Studio is intermittently unavailable but this should not affect running applications or end-users of apps.
