Sophos Wireless Update 2.1 (Staged release)
The release v2.1.0-3 brings more visibility to the wireless network with new features such as debugging, accounting, and supportability. It also addresses false alerts and improves wireless client scalability for the Sophos APX Series.
Events : You can now refer to a particular event, e.g. APX 320 is not “broadcasting”, and start correlating customer connectivity issues. You can filter events and generate reports. There is an option to export the current event log or for a time period of up to 90 days, in CSV or PDF.
Audit Logs : When an administrator changes a configuration or a setting then the Audit Logs will capture and shown who has changed what and when the change took place. It will list all activities monitored by Sophos Central.
Packet Capture : You can capture wireless packets from remote access points to diagnose and troubleshoot network issues. The access point acts as a distributed sniffer and captures packets on the configured channel and configured channel width from remote access points.
Syslog : You can capture syslog data from access points onto your configured syslog server. You can use the syslog data to debug connection issues. The syslog data can also capture system anomalies over a period of time.
Access points send LLDP packets only on the wired interface as a security measure.
Note : Legacy AP Series are not supported.

Wow. This looks like a lot of new useful features! Thanks for that!
I hope your new release has nothing to do with the recent outage (See community.sophos.com/.../133011)
This harmed me and some of our customers very bad. You guys really should improve QS before releasing something new.
