    Lots (and lots) of bug fixes, no landslide new features, comes with IPS engine 6.032 that is designed to reduce memory usage by 50% on ips demons. Need to get testing!

    Hi folks,
     
    I've pushed it out on a 60E.
     
    The immediate impact I have noticed is the drop in memory usage- 68% before upgrade (6.4.1) and 48% after upgrade (6.4.2). Smae config, similar number of sessions before and after.
     
    There are a huge number of bug fixes and looks like improvements from the IPS engine as James_G suggests. So far looks like a good move forward.
     
    Kind Regards,
     
     
    Andy.

    Hi guys,

    what is the recommended upgrade path? Can I go to 6.4.2 directly from 6.2.4?
    On the support portal in the "Upgrade Patch" section version 6.4.2. miss.

    Thanks
    Jirka

    AAAAARGHHHHHH!!!!! FORTINET WHAT ARE YOU DOING!??!?
     
    After upgrading my Lab 81E-PoE from 6.4.1 to 6.4.2 the hostapd daemon keeps crashing.

     
    Edit: WPA3 SAE SSIDs will crash the hostapd process every time a WPA3 client tries to connect. Strangely when using WPA3 SAE Transition on the SSID the process does not crash, although the client connects via WPA3.
     
    Fortinet: FIX IT!!!!! What happened to you QC?
