V5 Is Live!

What’s new in 5.0 (2011-Mar-31 11:33):

*) route – fixed cause of crashes when handling multipath routes;
*) route – fixed limit on maximum active IPv6 route count,
was causing issues with more than 2000 active routes;
*) ipsec – added command kill-connections under remote-peers;
*) ipsec – fix responder side phase2 negotiation problem
which prevented more than one Windows7 host to initiate SA;
*) fixed vrrp – interface was invalid after undoing remove;
*) winbox – added more detailed /interface ethernet stats;
*) winbox – added ability to send e-mail;
*) winbox – added missing ‘set-metric’ parameter
in ‘Routing/Prefix List’;
*) wireless – 802.11 dynamic distance fix;
*) fixed problem – packages could not be uninstalled if disk was full;
*) fixed problem – some of the RouterBOARDS did not reboot properly sometimes;
*) fixed problem – VLANs on bridge interface did not work;
*) ssh – client supports public key authentication;

I expect a lot of rapid succession V5 updates as they fix issues. I’m the consummate pessimist, so I won’t be using V5 for a few months at least. For all of you braver than I, let me know how it performs!

    Already running it on 3 sites as we received a pre-release v5.0 to fix a bug we’d encountered.

    Current issues (may have been fixed in the official release):
    – hotspot interface queues show in graphs (regardless of ip restriction in /tools graphs)
    – snmp v1 doesn’t seem to be working correctly (can’t poll remotely from our cacti server but doing an SNMP walk works sometimes)

    Andrew…I would never be surprised that you are on the bleeding edge. Thanks for the early reports Mr. over achiever.
