I would like to know the software release date 5.8 for Brocade MLX and when can it be put in production devices.
A link related to version 5.8 will be helpful.
Thanks & Regards,

Thanks Benjamin for replying. I believe version 5.8 was released in March 2015 not in 2016. Considering if it was released in March 2016, i would like to know why it is not recommened yet even after 9 months of release. What if I update it with 5.8 version since the release document never says not recommended?

Check out the target path selection guide for MLX:
There is a pretty decent explanation for the target path releases and software versioning rules.
If you need certain features or support for the latest hardware, running out of the target path may be necessary. But if you are more conservative like me, you may want stay behind and safe on target path 5.6.
