The XG Firewall v18 Early Access Program (EAP) 2 firmware release is now available for download. To get the latest release, go to the XG Firewall v18 EAP page.
Note: if you've already registered for the v18 EAP and upgraded your XG Firewall firmware, there's no need to re-register to gain access to the v18 EAP 2 release. You will see a notice in the firewall UI to upgrade through the Up2Date service.
We've updated the "Known Issues, Advice for Users, and Incomplete Features" document with new information.
Please remember, this is still an early build of the v18 release so there are some things we’d like to bring to your attention before you download the firmware and begin testing it.

Thanks. Looking at it right now.
EAP2 is not yet available through up2date service on firewall..... Please help.
Downloaded because I could not see any notification even when run manually. Installed and working, back to the forum for comments.
In product firmware update and new firmware available pop-up for EAP 2 will be available via Up2Date later today. It usually takes some time (server upload and server business logic update) after the firmware is available. Stay tuned.
We are sorry about the confusion.
Thank you very much for your continued support onto XG v18 early access releases.
I just registered again to get it. It’s not in the download for the GUI yet.
