Brocade Firmware upgrade

Hello experts ,Iam planing to do firmware upgrade for a brocade switch 200e, Current version is v5.2.1b , When I see release notes it quite confusing . Do we have any easy method or tool to find out how many jumps are required for latest versions.

2.Does it required to consider the HBA firmware compatibility.

Hi,
HP StorageWorks 4/8 SAN Switch and 4/16 SAN Switch (Brocade 200E)is compatible with the latest 6.2.0g. It is good to know, that from 6.1.1 certain features and functions were removed from Web Tools (resident in the firmware) and migrated io the Data Center Fabric Manager (DCFM) management.
The upgrade path is the following:
5.2.1b to 5.3.x
5.3.x to 6.0.x
6.0.x. to 6.1.0a
6,1.0a to 6.2.0g
The 6.1.0x versions yet have all the Web Tools zoning features like before and the most stable version there is 6.1.0h
