Hi Folks,

   this is a headsup that the output of "show version" has been modified in
12.3(4)T and 12.2(22)S.  12.3(4)T has been shipping for a few months, and
12.2(22)S is forthcoming.

details on the changes can be found at:


This change may negatively impact custom management tooling that is keying
off specific strings in the output of "show version"

e.g. Rancid 2.2.2 will not report the correct amount of NVRAM, and will
     also not report the correct IOS version string

     This is fixed in Rancid 2.2.3RC1

Please direct any replies directly to me (to avoid spamming the aliases).
