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. Note that we intentionally do not introduce new features into the ‘golden’ release to bolster stability of the software.
For customers who have been waiting for this release 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 Classic On-Premises customers can retrieve HiveManager version 6.8r7a from the Aerohive support portal. Self-upgrades, aka, “flying the bee”, will be enabled in a few weeks.
