Older XTR V-Brake Question

What difference is there between the Shimano XTR BR-M951 and M950?

The only think I can see from pictures is that the M951 has a solid parallel support and the M950 has 2 holes in it. Are the arms a different length? I'm replacing the brakes on my Trek and want to make sure I get this right.

Nevermind. Right after posting this I found the information I needed. Cosmetic only. Also, a spring was added to keep the brakes from rattling.
