21.02-rc1 wifi files


Just installed the 21.02-rc1 on a C7 (v5). I couldn't help but noticing that something changed in the installed software list on the "wifi drivers" side.
Pre 21.02 used ath10k-firmware-qca988x(-ct) and kmod-ath10k(-ct). The new 21.02-rc uses the additional file ath10k-board-qca988x.
Is this a replacement for the lib/firmware/ath10k/QCA988X/hw2.0/firmware-5.bin and/or board.bin files?
Sorry if this is a stupid question.


Did you consult the package contents? That would answer your own question.
