Today we have made available Version 8.301 of Astaro Security Gateway via soft-release. This is a maintenance release that will address various reported issues and will contribute to the stability of your ASG installation.
As there have been more instances of soft-release installations these past months, I'd like to outline the Soft-Release process again for new users. While we plan to release this exact package in within 1-2 weeks, it is possible that undiscovered critical issues might be addressed and introduced to the 'final' package which is pushed out via Up2Date. (Soft-releases are manual download via FTP and manual install to your ASG only). In that case, you might end up with a different installed package than the one we push out. We do have a plan for introducing a system which will still update your installation if you install a soft-release that is then changed, but that isn't ready quite yet. If this process doesn't appeal to you, don't install a soft-release; just wait until we release the official 8.301 and install that via WebAdmin normally at that time.
This release contains a number of fixes around VPN, Web Security, and wireless. We will monitor this thread for any feedback around this Up2Date until the GA Up2Date Push.
