Check Point made some new additions in their release notes that better define the path to R77.10. It looks as though we are reaching a tipping point, in that certain versions on SPlat can be upgraded only if it is to Gaia. For example if you want to upgrade from R75.47 to R77.10, you can only do so if R77.10 will be on (or convert to) Gaia. Yet you can still download a SPlat version for R77.10. I think moving forward people need to be really careful as to what OS they are going to use, at it may limit your upgrade options.

    When I see the upgrade path from R75.45 directly to R77.10 says Gaia Only, does that mean that the direct upgrade only works if you are currently running Gaia on R75.45? If you are running Secureplatform on R75.45, is there a different step that could be taken in the middle to upgrade to Gaia and then go to R77.10?

    That is a mistake that I might have made on the diagram. I think I made that ‘GAiA’ box too big, and it mistakenly covers R75.45. From the download wizard it looks like the options are:

    SPlat to SPlat
    R75.45 -> R77 -> R77.10

    SPlat to GAiA
    R75.45 -> R77.10

    What the diagram should have represented more clearly is the move from R75.47 to R77.10. According to the release notes if you are on R75.47 SPlat you can only move to R77.10 if you also upgrade to GAiA in the process. I will make a change to the diagram to make that more clear

    That makes more sense. Would you take off the security settings so I can open the new PDF please? Thank you for this information!
