As much as I don't want to come of as saying "me too!", I agree with 
everyone who wants the old IOS release table in security advisories to 
come back.  The IOS Software Checker is a nice tool, and development on it 
should absolutely continue, but the benefits of that tool do not 
completely offset the loss of IOS release tables.

As a possible compromise - how about keeping the IOS release tables until 
the software checker is more fully developed?
