MSL8089 - LX firmware names - what does LX Mean?

Hi All


I've got a MSL8096 Fibre Library and looking at various posts and L&TT the last update is 1130


So looking at HP Tape Tools we can down load


HP MSL G3 Seriers  1130




HP MSL G3 Seriers 1130


so whats the difference?


MSL8096_1130.frm  1818KB


MSL8096_LX_1130.frm 5375KB


So my question is apart from the size of the file - whats the  LX stand for??

This is the same firmware for the library itself + library extender firmware (using this special part you can stack several libraries to a single unit).
