Odd that it's taking them this long to put it out on the web page.  I suppose if you wanted it right away you could call in and arrange for them to FTP it to you.

It is GA, but it, just like the 7.2 release of the 8000s, is under the controlled introduction phase.  Essentially what this means is that if you want access to the code you need to contact your Avaya Rep/Reseller and have them add you into the program. 

Controlled Introduction is in some ways a 'red-carpet' support experience as you will get direct access to upper tier support during the period.

Release 2.0 of the WLAN provides the first implementation of the unified access (previously split-plane) and as such if you move to this architecture (not required but it is available) we want to make sure that you properly implement it.

All that is required is a valid support contract.
