this request for an update on progress is for those of us that do not have access top partners/resllers.
Would some-one in the know who iso allowed to provide progress on v18 please add to this thread.
I am not after guesses or conjecture, but real timelines (give or take a month).
Some slides here: https://investors.sophos.com/en-us/medialibrary/Microsites/Investors/Documents/Event-Materials/Sophos-CMD-2019-Products-Dan-Schiappa.pdf
What's interesting here is this .pdf is destined to investors.

will VLAN support in Bridge mode make it into v18 ? that's the only feature holding me back
Don't want to implement an XG in Router mode

Read the post !!! I posted about that here: https://www.avanet.com/assets/pdf/sophos-utm-firewall-xg-firewall-to-sg-utm-feature-comparison-en.pdf Sixte item, second page.
Really hoping for reverse DNS to work in Reports when using the XG as the DNS server. Maybe in the Central Reporting? Although I doubt it. And connect it to DHCP for pete's sake.
In reply to apalm123:
Not much hope of that with the current build, too many places where an ID is created but not DNS aware. Very frustrating even for a home user.
Half of August already gone, and licorne-beta-OS is nowhere to be found.
Sophos has never delivered on time so we shouldn't get our hopes up when they give a date or show a roadmap.

I know. I was just keeping the post alive ...
I heard that v18 beta should be out this month (September). It's been a while so hope that the Sophos engineers manage to include some key features expected in v18.5 in v18. I really want the application filters for VPNs to work e.g. X-VPN.
In reply to envercpt:
I don't understand your issue with x-vpn.io the XG blocks it now. If you implement the full VPN blocking as per the KBAs and other threads in these forums you will also be able to block other VPNs.
Update- further investigation results x-vpn.io and xvpn.io only block acmes to the support site.
In reply to rfcat_vk:
Does not work. Sophos support have suggested I enable "Decrypt & scan HTTPS". We have over 1000 BYOD users with different devices. Getting the Sophos certificate on each of these devices = BYOD hell.
Do you use any form of scanning? If so, create your own url policy for x-vpn.io and add it to your web policy. Doesn't stop the application installation on iPhone.
Make sure the BYODs cannot access the internet using other rules.
Is there any news info related to XG Firewall v18 Overview?
