The XG Firewall v18 MR1 release has been pulled. Update: The release is replaced by XG Firewall v18 MR1-build396Sophos has received reports from a subset of XG Firewall v18 MR1 systems, where the update has caused issues with traffic passing through the Firewall. Because of this, MR1 was pulled on the first day of Community availability as it warranted a fix before broader release. The release is replaced by XG Firewall v18 MR1-build396, that addresses the issue.XG Firewall v18 has been our most ambitious release ever and is one of the highest quality releases we’ve ever done thanks to an extensive Early Access Program that ran for over five months. In fact, several customers and partners deployed it en masse to production firewalls on launch day as a result of their confidence in the early access program. It is a rock solid and extremely well-tested release that you can feel confident running on your XG Firewall.If you are looking to upgrade from v17.5, please read the latest KB article which contains more information on this topic.

Is there any idea of timescale for the next release of V18 or at least an upgrade path from 17.5.11?
Any update team on when this is being re released?
Are we any closer to having the update? I really need to run V18 as need vlan on bridges, but can’t upgrade as on 17.5 mr12. Need to manage a few people’s expectations. Thanks.
Back again, so my very first post was right lol. I deleted the post as i fixed the issue by reuploading MR1 but this morning I lost Traffic to the internet again!! I think i managed to narrow it down to Syncronised security and heartbeat from the endpoints being blocked / not detected by MR1 which would then reject my endpoints traffic. But ive turned off the Central settings "reject network traffic" for right now and ill test my theory further later today!.
Unfortunately unusable.. Traffic stos after 15 mins, VPN Site to Site stops working. Rolled Back. Unfortunately Lost 17.5 boot option
