We were already in the process of doing a minor version update for our 3.0 security workbooks and will continue to work on that. That will be ready by the end of this month. We will of course start planning for the version 4 update and rack updates. A post will follow this one with more details but we will start putting out material and racks before the actually changes so if you're planning on taking it after the blueprint change you'll be covered.

As a side note I would really hope the R&S lab goes to version 15.2T for the ISRs and 15.0 for the 3560s! Talk about some cool features ;-)
