    Wink Untangle v17 or no?

    I had my Sessions page open on auto-refresh and I was just staring at it for a while and watched my Untangle initiate bypassed connections directly from my WAN interface to Amazon Web Services, persistent connections, to several different IP's, even when connect to Command Center is off. What is it doing? Are they host to certain Untangle Resources? Out of curiousity, I turned on and then off command center and watched more connections being made. One was on port 80 so I decided to check it out. Stumbled onto this: http://52.27.243.199/projects/ngfw/ and then this: https://github.com/untangle Then my ADD kicked in.

    I'm completely ignorant when it comes to development and understanding GitHub. I stayed up way past my bedtime perusing the Untangle GitHub "Project". Is that what you call it? I came across this: https://github.com/untangle/ngfw_src...2-08-23&type=c it's entirely possible, in fact, probable that I'm not reading this correctly so please correct me if I'm wrong. This link points to some sort of project insights on the ngfw_src (is that the untangle source code?) and it appears development has steadily declined in 2022. Does this mean the next release is imminent? Or does it mean Arista has pulled developers off the project so they can focus on other things? it appears there are no issues with the code. Is that a good thing? I'm really tired and bordering on loopy. I just thought it was interesting.

    I'm happy to volunteer as a beta tester if you need one.

    Betas are posted here to the forums once they're available.

    Please don't reboot your NGFW.
    How can we make Arista ETM products better?

    Just to be clear, there is no v17 at the moment. Some forum user keeps posting about v17 with no knowledge. The next release is v16.6 which is coming probably this quarter.

    We have never pre-announced releases as many other companies also do so your posts of releases with no facts is confusing visitors to this forum.

    This... very much this.

    My only gripe is I really wish a new OS release was v17 instead of v16.6. But I can understand the desire to keep major releases linked to actual functionality instead of a base OS change.

    But if we turn things on its head and say the OS is minor... then it's not v16.6, but instead v16.5.3.

    So I'm going to sit and be grumpy in the corner and just say that SEMVER is hard!
