Latest Brocade firmware 6.1.2b???

Just noticed that the latest firmware for brocade switches has just been released as 6.1.2b. There is also a reference to a 6.2.1 but it is not on the download list. Is this just a mistake or is their something else happening.

Just looked. 6.2.1 *is* now on the B-series firmware download lists.

But my point is that 6.1.2b has only just been released yet 6.2.x has been available for some time.
So, is their something particular that 6.1.2 offers that is not available in 6.2.x?.

Found the answer thanks to approaching brocade directly. I'm sure it is buried in the release notes somewhere but it is a long way from being obvious.

It appears that the 6.1.x stream supports the CEE and FC capability for the brocade 8000 box. The 6.2.x stream supports all the 4G and 8G boxes.
