1.What is the difference between rfaj7.X and rfaj 8.X?
rfaj8.x removes the legacy interfaces, MarketData and TibMsg. It supports OMM interface only.
2.What does L1/L2/E2 signify in the version number?
L1/L2; the “L” is Normal Release package. The package is for a new feature, many maintenance, and fixes. The full set of testing is tested against the software.
E2; the “E”/“E-load” is Emergency Release package. The package is the emergency release fixes for the urgent specific problem. Only the fixed issued are tested. A full set of regression testing is not tested due to the time-critical nature of an E-Load.
For details of changes in each RFA version, please refer to README in the package.
Anyway, both L and E packages are fully supported by Refinitiv. Please refer to API COMPATIBILITY MATRIX showing RFA products compatibilities that Refinitiv currently supports.
Hope this help.
