Up2Date 9.006 is now available. In this update we have included a number of fixes and improvements. The two main areas of focus are around increasing the quality and strength of the wireless signal on AP10 access points for our global install base, while we have also addressed memory consumption and optimized memory usage in the system overall. Particular effort has been focused on WebAdmin usage when the UTM dashboard is open/viewed for extended periods (hours+) and around Web Protection performance.
