Hi XG Community!
We've released XG Firewall 18.0 GA-Build379. Initially, the firmware will be available by manual download from the Licensing Portal. We will gradually release the firmware via auto-update to customers.
Please visit the following link for more information regarding the upgrade process: Sophos XG Firewall: How to upgrade the firmware.
Please refer XG Firewall v18 highlights for more details on all-new Xstream Architecture delivering extreme new levels of visibility, protection and performance. Also, check out our XG Firewall v18 playlist on YouTube to find out what's new in XG Firewall v18!
As usual, this firmware update is no charge for all licensed XG Firewall customers. The firmware will be rolled-out automatically to all systems over the coming weeks but you can access the firmware anytime to do a manual update through MySophos.
For fresh installations, please find the following installer images:
Note: Please note that upgrading from SFOS v17.5.x to SFOS v18 GA-Build379 may take longer than normal, due to the file system correction checks. The approximate time is dependent on the hard disk size and state. More info available in this KBA.

Installed earlier tonite ... Since it is a security fix, I did not expect much. Still alive after around 2 hours ...
For those who already Upgraded to the "deferred" V18MR1, will there be further upgrades or is a rollback necessary to 18.0 GA to get "final" 18MR1?
Does it work for you sending a backup configure to email in this version? It does not work for me, but test sending email works fine. In previous version (SFOS 18.0.0 GA-Build354) was works fine.

Attempted a fresh install from ISO. v18 ISO install will leave a XG125W stuck at startup at the Shell prompt. No further boot process.
