The product team is pleased to announce the maintenance release update for Sophos Firewall OS v18.5 with important security and reliability fixes.
You can manually download SFOS v18.5 MR5 from the Sophos Licensing Portal and update your firewall anytime. v18.5 MR5 will NOT be pushed as an in-product update since the latest available firmware on the web admin console will show the latest 19.0 and 19.5 versions.
18.5 MR5 is a fully supported upgrade from all previous versions of v18.5. Once your firewall is on v18.5 MR5, you can upgrade to the future (to be released) maintenance releases which will be v19.0 MR2 and v19.5 MR1. You cannot upgrade from v18.5 MR5 to v19.0 MR1 or v19.5 GA. For more details, please see the Upgrade information tab in the release notes.

Has anyone tried 18.5 MR5 (or MR4) on an XG 135? I'd be interested to know if there are any issues coming from MR3.
We had it also on other firewalls. But today SFOS 19.5.0 GA-Build197 was pulled by the firewall and is available for install.
probably this Firmware has been presented to our machine some days too early ad just came together with this announcement of the 18.5.5.
We had this message yesterday:
When I look at the firewall of our customer, nothing is dispalyed for new firmware, even at Sophos central: nothing.
Can you share the Case ID for which you have the Access ID turned on?
They should be updated by now https://docs.sophos.com/releasenotes/index.html?productGroupID=nsg&productID=xg&versionID=18.5
