Why has a new download has been posted with an old build number (16.0.1512)?
What does "SQL Anywhere Advanced" mean, in the context of a download?
What does "EBF 21592" mean?
SQL Anywhere Advanced - EBF 21592: 16.0 SP1 Build 1512 Update of 16.0 to build 1512 16.0 21 Aug 2013 EBF/Patch SQL Anywhere - Update of 16.0.0 to build 1535 16.0 30 May 2013 EBF/Patch SQL Anywhere - Update of 16.0.0 to build 1512 16.0 16 May 2013 EBF/Patch

Let me first apologize for any confusion that this may have caused you or others.
We at SAP are working towards posting SPs (support packages SAP terminology, formerly EBFs) both on downloads.sybase.com and in the SAP Service MarketPlace (SMP). This process results in the same download being cross-posted to both locations. Originally when 16.0 build 1512 as posted this process wasn't in place. This SP was re-posted using this new methodology. In the future, only the new format will be posted (except perhaps when build 1635 (already available) gets cross-posted).
The EBF number that's listed is just a unique identifier for an EBF on downloads.sybase.com. The number itself is meaningless to you I believe.
You may have also noticed that there are other files associated with the download that weren't typically there. For example, there is a bug fix readme file that is of a different format than the one you're used to. The old style html readme is still available within the install and is the one that pops up at the end of the software install process.
SQL Anywhere Advanced is the package name in our internal systems. I'm not sure I can get it changed to SQL Anywhere like you're used to. Hopefully, it's enough for you to know that the install is identical to what you're accustomed to getting.
