Version has been released.

Severity: Suggested

Enhancements: None


  • Added support for SGMII Copper SFP transceivers. (70792)


  • Underlying TCP sockets would not be returned to the allocated pool when using the Google Chrome browser via HTTPS. This would eventually lead to exhaustion of the socket pool, and rejection of subsequent HTTPS connection requests. (68274)
  • Attempted configuration of port speed, duplex mode, and flow-control settings would appear to be successful, when in fact manual configuration of these paramaters is not supported. Error messages have been added to notify the user of these limitations. (70838, 71364)
  • A watchdog timeout could occur while executing the scheduled reboot feature. (71571)
  • A Security vulnerability existed in IBM Switches which support Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE), in that data frames were being flooded out of every port if the destination address was not in the MAC table. (CVE-2013-0570).
