9.101 Up2Date Released (Today)

Further to our earlier post (http://www.astaro.com/en-uk/node/20887) about some issues in UTM 9.100, and a soft-release of UTM 9.101 made last week, I'd like to inform you that within the next few hours we will GA release Up2Date 9.101 that stabilizes your UTM 9.100 release and offers several fixes for RED, Wireless, WebAdmin, and more while addressing some performance issues as well. You should apply this Up2Date with priority at your earliest opportunity once it has downloaded and shows up as available for installation in your WebAdmin. Read on for extended details of UTM 9.101.

Some users have reported issues with UTM 9.100, and we'll look to fix many of those with this 9.101 release. There is a thread on our user community forums here which discusses some of the affected areas in depth in addition to the notice posted on this blog on May 23. Whether you are affected by any of the displayed issues or not, you should apply 9.101 for best performance and stability of your UTM installation.
