we changed the v1.0 design so to fit the production. The manufacturer of the board had a surplus of some components (mosfet, diode), so we decided to replace some of the components we initially chose to speed up and ease the production (the component requirements were identical, only the footprint were different).
I think we did the same for v1.1 and v1.2, and we just kept the 'p' (for production) from there on but the design didn't need to be changed.
This confusion is now only due to historical reasons.
