Note
We do not expect any problems in all micro versions covered in the following tables of supported platforms, but we cannot strictly guarantee correct end-to-end system functionality in other platform versions than the Reference Test Platforms, as bugs in the platform code and problems introduced by combining different unforeseen micro-level versions of the different platform components could in rare cases introduce incorrect system behavior that is beyond our control.
