According to the Aerohive download area 6.0r2c is currently the only HiveOS version available for the AP370/390.

The HiveManager version should be 6.1r2.

Crowdie is correct. HiveOS version for AP370/390: 6.0r2c. For rest of the APs it is 6.1R2.

Has the HiveOS firmware for the 370 been updated? I still only see 6.0r2c.

As a general rule, you need to update HiveManager to its latest version first to see the latest versions of HiveOS. It is typically required for compatibility.

HiveOS 6.0r2e is the latest. As Nick pointed out, update you HiveManager. Then go to the configuration tab, click the Devices link, select the AP(s) you want to update, click the Update link and select Advanced -> Upload and Activate HiveOS Firmware. If your HM is up to date, you should see the latest firmware listed. If not, click the Add/Remove link and Upload from "HiveOS latest images from update server." 
Of course once you are sure the latest HiveOS images are on you HM, the easiest way to update is to select your devices, click Update -> Update Devices and ensure the Configuration and HiveOS are both being updated.

Best,
BJ

You can always use the latest version of HiveManager, which supports the latest version of your AP's firmware (in this case 6.0r2e). As Nick mentioned, the general rule is to always have your HiveManager on a higher, or at least equal version to be able to manage your AP's

I was just wondering why the firmware for the 370, rev 6.0r2e, is so far behind my HiveManager's HiveOS, which is rev 6.1r6a.

Steve,
The AP370/390 use a chipset from a different vendor than other Aerohive access points. Due to some architectural differences, it has been harder for us than expected to implement certain features on that platform than on the others. We are NOT stranding these platforms, we ARE working towards bringing them up to release and feature parity with the other access points, but it will be later this year before that happens.

What is the current situation with firmwares for AP370s? HMOL 6.2r1 doesn't see any newer version than 6.0r2... Any upgrades coming?

Yes, it is in the works and should be around April, presumably for 6.4r2.
