Mikrotik ROS V5.18 Released

What’s new in 5.18 (2012-Jun-21 17:20):

*) fixed upgrade problem when it failed with error “disk is too small” while
there was plenty of space left;
*) fix health and poe access reliability on OmniTIK UPA and RB750UP boards;
*) sstp – improve initial handshake to better handle many new connections;
*) wireless – do not use bridge and WDS mode on AP-AP links, causes loops;
*) dhcp ipv6 pd client – fixed ipv6 pool creation after reboot;
*) dhcp ipv6 pd client – added option add-default-route;
*) sstp – fixed connection idle time reporting;
*) fix bad block count not to increase on Samsung K9F1208U0C nand;
*) snmp – fix dhcp lease table, snmp reported an incorrect information
when a static lease had configured different address than current active address,
this should also solve problem with dude polling same leases over and over again;
*) fix RB1100 crash on interface disable/l2mtu change/reboot;
*) dns could not resolve some domain names, was ignoring replies with DNAME RRs;
*) fix firewall log action – sometimes was not logging mac addr;

Sounds like a strong set of bug fixes, though no new features. You guys Guinea pig it and let me know.

    Reading the list, it seems much more detailed and fleshed out than usual.

    I assume there is a lot more in there than what they have listed.

    Mikrotik is notorious for leaving stuff out of changelogs.
