Is there a difference between DB2/400 and DB2 UDB?

What is the difference between DB2/400 and DB2 UDB for the iSeries?
DB2/400 and DB2 UDB for iSeries are essentially the same thing. iSeries (AS/400) was able to adopt the DB2 UDB branding when it delivered a lot of new database functionality in V4R4 of OS/400, so the database was renamed from DB2/400 to DB2 UDB for iSeries in that release.
