Whatever did happen to R80.20.60 ?

Today i went thru CP Support Center Notifications: 2022-12-04 and downloaded updated Admin Guides. Soon i stumbled upon

Strange - nice to have, but the R80.20.60 homepage is not available anymore:

For more about this release, see the R80.20.60 home page.

It is also no longer listed in sk165734: Quantum Spark Appliances R80.20 Releases

So what did happen to R80.20.60 ? Admin Guides are still available, but why update the CLI Guide for a version that can not be downloaded anymore ?

R80.20.60 still exists as a release…and the SK referencing it is now internal.
All of the content for it (to the best of my knowledge) should be available in the R81.10.00 release, which is what we recommend instead of R80.20.60.

R80.20.60 has 2 new features:

- TACACS+ server - TACACS+ (Terminal Access Controller Access-Control System) is an access control mechanism that enables user authentication and authorization of users by a separate server on the network.

IPv6 prefix selection mode in dynamic IPv6 internet connections

OS advanced settings attributes

Description

IPv6 prefix selection mode

Set IPv6 prefix selection mode in dynamic IPv6 internet connections. Select the IPv6 prefix with the highest preference. If there is more than one prefix with the same preference, select based on these options:

n Router preference - oldest. Select the oldest prefix unless its remaining lifetime is less than one hour. (Default)

n Router preference - newest. Select the newest prefix.
n Preferred lifetime - oldest. Select the prefix with the oldest

preferred lifetime.
n Preferred lifetime - newest. Select the prefix with the newest

preferred lifetime.

 

Both features are not available in R80.10.00 - my sources:

You're correct...these features will be added in R81.10.05, which is currently in EA.

What i can not understand is why it has disappeared from sk165734: Quantum Spark Appliances R80.20 Releases - would be more appropriate to list it here with the two new features and refer to TAC or SE for download !
