latest sendmail on 11.00 and 11.11

As far as I know, the latest version of sendmail on HP is 8.9.3,
11.00 PHNE_24419
11.11 PHNE_25184

Am I right? From ftp.sendmail.org, the latest version is 8.12.3, can I upgrade from 8.9.3 on HP?

Thanks Christopher. Following the info you gave it to me, I upgraded mine from current 8.9.3 to 8.11.1. I list what I did for others reference.

1. download sendmail 8.11.1 from www.software.hp.com
to /tmp

2. swinstall -s /tmp/Sendmail-811_11.00.depot

3. verify by using
sendmail -di or
sendmail -ds

Since the installation did not change /etc/mail/sendmail.cf, it is no need to restart sendmail. Actually, the purpose for me to upgrade is for security, but I studied the Release Note, no new added feature specific for security. However, I can revert back to the previous version by using
/usr/bin/enable_inet -r sendmail, cool!
