HIPS 6.1 Support in ePO 4.0

I'm looking at upgrading to 4.0 what with 3.6.1. coming near EOL. I know when 4.0 was released there was no support for HIPS 6.1. For that reason I didn't upgrade.

Looking at the list of fixes up to patch 5 for ePO 4.0 I don't see any mention of support being added for HIPS 6.1. Also looking at the supported app documents for ePO 4.0 I see:

Supported Apps: HIPS 7
Unsupported: HIPS 6.0

But no mention of 6.1 or is that bundled in with 6.0?

Thanks for any help, really like to hear if people are manageing 6.1 with 4.0.
