ArubaOS 6.1 vs. 6.2 vs. 6.3?

Greetings all,


I'm currently unpacking my 620 and notice it has installed, and I also see there are currently three different releases available for downloading. My question is - at the very least I was going to upgrade to the latest 6.1.3.x (today it is .11) stable would be best, but wondering if there is a quick reference compare/contrast checklist between 6.1, 6.2, and 6.3 releases?


Thank you!

Thanks very much all! Sounds like based on my basic setup - a 620 with two to three older APs (AP-125, AP-105) shouldn't get a whole lot moving to 6.3 unless I get issues with newer device connection support or guest portal issues. Thanks!
