ACL Support on Fortigate VM?

I would like to know if the Access Control Lists (ACL's) are supported on FortiGate-VM product.
I ask this because the FortIOS 6.4 admin manual includes the following text which makes me suspect that the VM's do not support them:
The ACL is a Layer 2 function and is offloaded to the ISF hardware. Therefore, no CPU resources are used in
the processing of the ACL. It is handled by the inside switch chip which can do hardware acceleration, which increases
the performance of the FortiGate. The drawback is that the ACL function is only supported on switch fabric driven
Regards in advance.
