The XG Firewall v18 Early Access Program (EAP) 3 firmware release is now available for download.
To get the latest release, go to the XG Firewall v18 EAP page. With EAP 3, we have moved to more secured firmware signing method, hence, you will see ".sig" extension for the firmware update files than the older ".gpg" extension.
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 3 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.

Is mDNS reflector on the product roadmap ? thanks
are you using firefox? firefox opens the file like a webpage instead of a download link copy the address page and put into edge and it will download fine.
