This is Aerohive’s long-lived stable release branch of HiveOS, sometimes referred to in the industry as a “golden” release or branch of software. In this release, we’ve fixed stability, performance and customer issues. Adopters of this release branch will not have to worry about the introduction of new features introducing instability in their networks.
For customers who have been waiting for this to get certain specific HiveOS bug-fixes, on-demand upgrades are available now for HMOL customers, using their normal process of contacting Technical Support. HiveManager On-premises customers can retrieve HiveManager version 8.0r1 from the Aerohive support portal. Self-upgrades, aka, “flying the bee”, will be enabled in a few weeks. HM Classic 8.0r1 provides an refreshed look and feel to enhance user experience.
Please consult with the release notes for the comprehensive list of bug-fixes. There were also some changes in behavior introduced in this release:
