seeking further info on firmware-3

I'm testing Linux 3.18-rc5 with a QCA9880 / Compex WLE900VX.

During boot, I'm seeing complaints about not finding firmware-3.bin:

ath10k_pci 0001:03:00.0: Direct firmware load for 
ath10k/QCA988X/hw2.0/firmware-3.bin failed with error -2
ath10k_pci 0001:03:00.0: could not fetch firmware file 
'ath10k/QCA988X/hw2.0/firmware-3.bin': -2

Can someone please confirm that we should be using 
firmware-3.bin_10.2-00082-4-2 from the 10.2 folder on
?  When we use this firmware, we see the following during boot:

ath10k_pci 0001:03:00.0: qca988x hw2.0 (0x4100016c, 0x043202ff) fw 
10.2-00082-4-2 api 3 htt 2.1
ath10k_pci 0001:03:00.0: debug 1 debugfs 1 tracing 0 dfs 0 testmode 1

If this isn't the latest & greatest firmware, then where do I find 

And If I should be using firmware-3.bin_10.2-00082-4-2, then are there 
some release notes available for this?

Finally, please let me know if it's a mistake to be working with 
firmware-3 on the 3.18 kernel.   We're performing some early integration 
testing with this WiFi module, and it's more important to get things 
working as an AP with hostapd than getting the latest cutting edge 
features working.
