        This is long past old. Get rid of the idiotic names already. At least versions based on release dates make sense and are easy to remember.

            They are cycle X and cycle B2, respectively. It is safe to just use B however, since there's such great distance in time between Breezy Badger and Bionic Beaver, they can never be confused and only one B exists at any one time.

            But you only ever deal with code names when you're doing things manually, in which case you'll probably already know these things or at least have access to Google to easily look it up.
