After the announcement of the available material Fabric OS 7.0.0a has been released.
On the page http://community.brocade.com/docs/DOC-2041 only the first revision of the 7.0 release notes is available.
The BCFA 16G beta course material is also available, probably a good idea to read up on both and do a little rehearsing.

The newer versions are not available if you have a registered account on my.brocade.com without any product registered to it. I’ve e-mailed Brocade asking for more access. In the meantime some are available on for example HP.com – but the Brocade release notes are not available there. And the HP Release notes for 7.0.0a have the HP names of the products.
On HP’s site you can go to the manuals for the 8/40 to get some more documents.
- v7.0.0a_release notes_HP in pdf (HP’s customer notice about the release of 7.0.0a)
- FOS_TrblShoot (3 June 2011, the same)
- 7.x.x FOS_CMD_reference guide (not available)
- 7.x.x FOS Admin Guide (3 June 2011, the same)
- 7.x.x AG Admin Guide (not available)
- 7.x.x. Fabric Watch Admin Guide (29 April 2011)
- Neither is FCIP admin guide available
- But the Network Advisor stuff is. (assume these are the same)
- 7.0.0 Message Reference (this has the public error messages that you may see in errdump)
Actually it looks like the documents available are quite up to date. I guess the Admin Guides etc don’t update that often anyway. There is however a document in the manuals link above that explains that there have been some changes to some of the Brocade Documents. This might be worth checking out.
The conclusion of this little exercise is that the material available is currently good enough (for me).
