FortiOS v5.6.3 is out!

today v5.6.3 has been released...

 

I'm curious...

starting from this version, are you using lazy-loading to improve page loading???

Again, new version, new bugs. As always. Again I'm disapointed.

I don't think that it was tested at all.

 

For me it is even more annoying, because I have FG 500E, probably first device in Poland. And 5.6.3 is the first firmware from 5.6 tree, I can't downgrade even if I would want. Another thing, 500E doesn't have internal hard disk and can log only to FAZ, but current GA FAZ release 5.6.0 doesn't cooperate with 500E :D

What's New in FortiOS 5.6.3 introduces Hotspot 2.0.

sadly, recently I have given up all "FortiAP" units and changed to "Unifi" AP...

1. 802.11ac: bad, unstable signal quality, bad performance(<50Mbps)

2. I hate sometimes I must reboot fortiAP because looks like it's not working...I got complain from end-user many times...

Can Fortigate (as WLAN Controller) interwork with Unify APs?

definitely you can't , unifi AP is belonged to UBNT this brand...

but its software controller is free or can purchase cheap CouldKey controller..

there are 2~4 free software controller solutions for unifi ....

I don't think that we will get the global-labels back:

I had to change your link to load it: http://kb.fortinet.com/kb/viewContent.do?externalId=FD40956 

 

Along with the comment about global-labels no longer being supported that KB states:

"The Sequence view and Seq. # columns are removed."

 

I don't see any way they could remove the "By Sequence" view for Security Policies, so I'm not sure what they are referring to.

Global section labels will be restored in 5.6.4.

Thank you for the clarification!
