An important announcement about XG Firewall and UTM 9 maintenance releases

chat-bubbles-150We’re pleased to announce our first maintenance release for XG Firewall today, with a number of important fixes to improve the operation of your firewall. We also wanted to take this opportunity to outline our release notes strategy for future firewall and UTM releases.

For major feature releases, we will continue to publish notifications here on the Sophos Blog highlighting the new features and capabilities, with links to the complete release notes on the Sophos Community Forums.

For all maintenance releases, we will soon begin publishing notifications and release notes on the Sophos Community Forums only, so we encourage you to subscribe to the community product blogs to keep up with all the latest releases.

You can find XG Firewall release notes in the Sophos XG Firewall Community Blog.

UTM 9 maintenance release notes will similarly be published in the Sophos UTM 9 Community Blog.
