Paratrooper Pro new frame difference?

hi.. i'm having a hard time to see if paratrooper pro got a a change in frame (other then the quick release location) i know that highline accepts 27.5, and according to the link below so does the paratrooper but as they've put it in a reply it would have "less clearance from the older frames" problem is they don't say if those older frames are the highline or the paratrooper.

since my dealer does not have the paratrooper in stock, i wanted to makes sure the paratrooper pro frame is identical now to the highline.

another thing completely unrelated, is there a terminology for that bar the on left chainstay on this frame? where the brake is?

Um, dumb question, but is the bar for reinforcing the chainstay/seatstay for disc brake use? If so, I'd call it a seatstay reinforcement, but I don't know what the common name is.

I've always called it a gusset, "a bracket strengthening the angle of a structure."
