A while ago, Jeff has informed about new "permanent links" to the newest EBF readme files for all SQL Anywhere versions starting with v9.
To cite from that answer (as it is somewhat buried within that other FAQ):
A good idea and a helpful service, apparently.
However what I'm missing here is the choice to filter these readme files based on a "known" version - particularly if one tries to use these readme files to find out about new fixes, it would be very handy if they could be filtered like the "normal" readme files that are part of the EBF install.
The permament readme files seem to miss that filter feature:
So where can I find a "filterable" readme that helps me to find out, say, about the new fixes between 220.127.116.1155 and 18.104.22.16878?
FWIW: The readme page does contains some buttons to access a printer-friendly version, a PDF document and to compare doc versions but all that's not what I'm looking for...
Here's a link to a summary page that makes the latest EBF readmes for all current versions publically available - posted by Mark on another FAQ:
That will show something like this:
and these documents are the "filterable" ones as desired.
(I don't know if this link will be announced officially or falls under the "stealth marketing" approach - but as you guys keep listening to us customers and solve that "readme availability problem" it surely should get honoured. - A BIG THANKS to you!)

Just to illustrate - the readme files of a particular EBF does contain the filter feature, so possibly it's required to dig into the SAP support page and look for the according EBF and download its "info file" and - here you go. - But as stated, that's not very comfortable...

Today I downloaded EBF 1600_2087 for Mac-OS. Like usually with Windows-EBFs I've tried to extract the readme file from the (deeply nested) archive, but to no avail.
The link in this thread http://sqlasupport.sap.com/readme/index.html (in Volkers answer) points to Build 2065, not 2087.
But following the Info link in the line with the downloadable file and clicking on the link in the next dialogue I could open the sought-after EBF readme file.
