Better to show FreePBX 5.211.65 (Stable) and FreePBX 6.12.65 (Alpha) omitting each Minor Release Revisions (now reported -13 and -11) because today were available, respectively, the ISOs of FreePBX Distro 5.211.65-14 (Download portal was updated) and FreePBX Distro 6.12.65-12 (Download portal wasn’t updated yet) which should have those security fixes yet provided…or, at least, point out that very latest ISOs (writing which ones) are providing those security fixes and all other FreePBX Distro Minor Release Revisions of Track 5 and 6 should be updated as usual up to -14 and -12.
