    Hello,
    I would like to get some clarification on the “Product integration & support” section of the release notes for FortiAP devices; I have checked the release notes for 5.0.8 & 5.0.9 and in the section for FortiOS says:

    FortiAP v5.0 Patch Release 8 is supported by:
    • FortiOS v5.0.8 build 0291
    • FOS v5.0 Feature Branch fg_5-0_wifi_11ac/build_tag_4601, based off FOS v5.0.8 build
    0291.
    • FortiOS v5.2.0 build 0589

    So, my question is, does that mean that FortiAP 5.0.8 supports FortiOS v5.0.8 through v5.2.0 or just those two specifically? I ask because on the release notes for FortiAP 5.0.9 it says pretty much the same except the first version it mentions is FortiOS v5.0.10 and the last is v5.2.2

    Thanks,
    Ricardo
