AxG V7.401 Released

With AxG V7.400 now populated to our user-base, we have a follow up Up2Date which addresses a few issues that did not make the GA version in time.

This is a pure bugfix/stability release which strengthens the quality of your Astaro installation. Depending on your location and bandwidth, this Up2Date may take some hours to become available within WebAdmin of your installation. We are testing a new distributed Up2Date dispersal system based on a cloud infrastructure, which may significantly speed up both Up2Date propagation to your device, and the download speed at which the Up2Date is retrieved.

As this service is fully deployed, most customers will directly see the benefit for future releases.
