Hello Sophos,can we still expect the XG V18 MR 3 this week ?
Update: SFOS v18 MR3 has been releasedPlease see - https://community.sophos.com/xg-firewall/b/blog/posts/xg-firewall-v18-mr3
Here's the latest update:
As with any release for XG Firewall, ensuring…
As with any release for XG Firewall, ensuring high quality and a great customer experience is our top priority with MR3. For this reason, we generally do not make timing commitments for Maintenance Releases and only publish them once they meet our high quality standards. MR3 is a substantial release, integrating a number of security and performance enhancements as well as a significant number of fixes. We know there is high anticipation amongst partners and customers for many of these enhancements and are working as fast as possible to get it into their hands. We expect to release it next week but as mentioned, quality is our top priority and that will determine the release timing.
When MR3 doesn't solve all the problems, Sophos is history in our company. It's impressive how the community tried to handle the disaster of the last 4 months, but like a professional company the problems under maintenance are unbearable. Shophos is the 4th vendor we use in our 23 year history and it is the worst. But, it's our own fault. There would have been enough evidence.
Hello, Flo,do you already have a day to release the MR3 ?
sorry, obviously the wrong place for my commentthis was just a comment from our company's point of view on the v18 disaster.
Hi Heinz, we have been using 18.0.1 for a few months now and we haven't had much problems.
But we are not yet using the full functionalities.We are in the process to preparing for a major project with a big customer, and are therefore quite curious about possible risks.What are the issues that are driving you mad? :-)You can send them as a private message if you don't want to put them here.

I would also be interrested in the list of issues you have with the current version. If you don't want to post it on the forum, feel free to share it via PM. Thx
Big flaming install issue on UEFI system I brought up server times and it was essentially "shut up Brian"
After buying the XG135 we had to replace the HW 2 times because it was defective. In March we definitely switched from SonicWall to Sophos. We have a simple network and no big demands on the FW, except that it should be secure and perform well. From March to June everything went very well, high performance, stable. It started in July, first we had problems with Microsoft and Apple updates, then we had voice (Vopi,Skype,Teams) problems. We opened a support task at Sophos DE, the support was useless. Then we were forced to perform a Fatory reset (our telephone switchboard had been down for a week). Afterwards everything went back to normal until early September. Now we are ready again. To be able to work to a certain extent, we have to reboot the FW every 2 days. We have a 1Gb connection but after 2 days we can use 10% at most.If someone writes that he has no problems with v18.01 (we don't want to talk about v18.02!) then I congratulate and envy him. But if you read the reports in the community, I would say we are not the exception but the rule.
