Software Image Migration Guide

Figure 1 displays Cisco IOS Software Release 12.1(14)AZ release functionality relative to the 12.1 and 12.1E releases. This diagram also identifies the recommended migration path to Cisco IOS Software Release 12.1(19)EA1. Note that Release 12.1(14)AZ is a special one-time "X" release with no planned maintenance releases. Thus, bugs that would have otherwise been fixed in a maintenance release will be fixed in the 12.1EA train and will be available in the 12.1(19)EA1 release or later releases.
