A colleague in my office spoke to a UK&I based SE, who told him that the release window was between 01-05 May 2017.  I checked every day last week, and again this morning.  Still no joy....  I'll contact the SE for an update this pm.

I spoke to our SE earlier - it seems release has slipped a couple of weeks.  I suspect we will need to wait until the end of May.

both 5.6.0 and 5.4.3 keep slipping, though my SE says 5.6.0 will likely come first. 5.4.3 has reached Mythical Unicorn status by now.

I just asked my rep and was given a mid June-July time frame.  This frustrates me as we upgraded a few FGT's to 5.6 and the beta team never gets back to me on why the beta downloads aren't working...

I have managed a temporary work-around that enables me to view my v5.6 logs and carry out analytics without losing the logs on my production v5.4 FAZ.  

 

I have spoken to my SE, who has been able to supply me with access to the FAZ v5.6 beta; I built a fresh vm from the beta code.  When configured, I have then gone to the production FAZ, and configured Log Forwarding with a device filter configured to only forward the logs from the FGT running v5.6.  

 

Once you have configured forwarding from the "donor" FAZ, you just need to go and accept the device on the "target" FAZ.

 

So far so good - the events & logs are all coming through as expected.  This will do for now, until release of v5.6 GA.

My sources still point to Mid-June for GA release.
