is there a roadmap for the XGs for the next major versions and the planned functions?
Hi Steppenwolf ,
Next major release is 17.1 and expected by end March 2018.

So far, I've found only something like this:
Next major release is 17.1 and expected by end March 2018 ... Bump.
In reply to Big_Buck:
Just remember guys that 17.0.6 mr6 was late. I am not making excuses just pointing out.
I am also hoping there will be more than shown in the post above, otherwise another disappointing release with no real security or functionality improvements.
There are so many things that need fixing or enhancing.
Agree, we need to see a more detailed Roadmap.

Two weeks ago, the "sophos-xg-firewall-v17-1-whats-new" document was published sophos-xg-firewall-v17-1-whats-new.pdf.The v17.01 version is expected to be available in April.
In reply to JanSadlik:
thank you for posting the update. Interestingly some of the wireless features are already available in v17.0.6 wifi 11.0.1.

Shoud We expect V17.1 In this week????
In reply to VishvasChitale:
VishvasChitale what do you need that will come with v17.1 ??? For my curiosity.
I am expecting certain fixes from Development team and most awaiting is Synchronized Application Control further development to put for practical use !!!!!!
From what I was told 17.1 will also include fix for static ip PPPoE VPN users that have a tunnel that wont re-establish. So that's a new vpn fix that hasn't been available to this point as well.
XG v17.1 will be released in April at the latest.
XG v17.3 will also be released this year. Here is a small extract of the expected features. More detailed explanations will be given by us shortly before the release.

"XG v17.1 will be released in April at the latest." On a positive note, let's hope that Sophos will iron out all bugs even though it'll be released later than promised.
any news about Common Criteria EAL Certification for XG v17?
