Hi Darren, I just added a link to the release notes to my original post... should have included that in the beginning.
If you're asking specifically about the file names, it's just a naming convention change.

Hi Rich,
Sorry, I'm not aware of an EOS VM.

Hi, why no policy support also in this release? No openflow support, no ip-fix support....why you don't add these features to the VM? Are very useful these VM for learning the product and test configuration in manner that a customer may be more satisfied when a partner install then the product on a real switch...

The VM are not a product, meaning this is a best effort development. Because a VM runs, by definition, on software, we need to emulate the HW (ASIC) in software. That requires some effort, sometimes quite important, depending on the feature.

I agree it would be great to support Policy and some other features. Maybe in a future release?

Hi Stephane, I understand that and is great to have the VM..is a suggest for the next releases as support to the pre-sale phase of the partners (is not always possible to have physical HW for demo purposes). Thanks.
