Hi,

do you know what are the differences between the various letters in the firmware, for example 6.4.3b and 6.4.3c or a g at the end (like 6.2.0g)  I have EMC branded brocade switches, but I'm wondering what these versions mean.  thanks!

I believe the letters are minor version information - I haven't seen the final letter change on a numerical version in 10 years. But then I haven't really been looking for that.

The numbers are what you need to worry about.

This is the correct solution.  The major versions are the first digit, for example 6.1.3c would be a previous release to 6.1.3d and so on.
