Tired of waiting for 6.2.0 release? Well, the wait is over!
The Conel OS 6.2.0 is available for download.
Please note that the new version 6.2.0 sports a number of major changes, the biggest of them all being the new Linux kernel - 4.14.138.
The kernel change is significant and while we have done quite a number of tests, we decided to use the cautious release approach - the same we did for 6.0.0.
What does it mean? It means that the 6.2.0 is released as an update only version. In other words, you will be able to download 6.2.0 from our portal and upgrade your devices. On the other hand, manufacturing will stay on 6.1.10. In time, we would either deem 6.2.0 rock-stable and update manufacturing or keep manufacturing waiting for 6.2.1.
While you are encouraged to use 6.2.0 (it brings new features), please note that there are some important configuration changes in 6.2.0. Once you upgrade the router to 6.2.0, not all these configurations could be downgraded back to 6.1.10 easily so you should review the configuration once you decide to downgrade. Creating a configuration backup prior the upgrade to 6.2.0 is a wise thing to do.
Now what's in the mix:
