is there a roadmap for the XGs for the next major versions and the planned functions?
Forgot to put a follow up/bump here, on the road to XGv18 in two years.
SFOS 17.1.3 MR-3 released these days. Bug fix mostly.
V17.5.b is supposed to be due this week.
support says v17.5 is scheduled for November
Then what are the changes in 17.5? In the last roadmap I have seen there were 17.2, 17.3 and 18, no 17.5.
With best regards,

17.5 beta should be already available in October.
Quick overview of the key new features in v17.5:
were is v17.5.b hiding?
Never heard of 17.5.b unless someone in marketing invented the term.
In short, the originally planned 17.2 and 17.3 with lists of features have been replaced with 17.5 and the list of features above.
Also see community.sophos.com/.../xg-firewall-v17-5-is-coming-soon where they mention "We are expecting the beta to be available in the coming days".
v17.5.b is the beta version of v17.5 to give it a name.
Sorry to hear the UTM/EXIM is the point of comparison for mail filtering, since UTM/EXIM:
Email filtering seems like the weakest component in UTM, so if XG is reaching up to meet UTM, it is reaching up to a pretty low goal.
Is it still the same with EXIM version 4.91 ? Those first three items are deal killers for me. I read that DKIM can be implemented on EXIM by calling external services. Same for anti-spam et.c. I do not know yet how EXIM was implement on XG. Possibly it was done by Sophos already ...
No one has rebuked me yet...
I would be hapoy to be wrong, or to be the motivation to implement features that should have been in place 10 years sgo.
