Version 1.1.8 (compatibility release)

January 25, 2018

Please Note: This is a compatibility release to connect ML-60-19 and ML-60-35 units to the ML 2.5 Beam-forming sector and is not meant for PTP links!

Upgrade Notes
1.1.8 is not compatible with MetroLinq serial serial numbers starting with AF (late 2015 - early 2016 units). 
1.1.8 is not compatible with 1.1.7, so all connected devices must be upgraded. 
The device must be reset to default settings when rolling back to previous firmware versions. 
The 5 GHz radio mode (master or client) should match the 60 GHz radio mode (master or client) before upgrading.

Release Notes 
New Feature: Added support for PTMP with ML 2.5 Beamforming Sector  
Improved: Failover implemented through bonding
Bug Fix: Client does not recover from disconnection
Bug Fix: 5 GHz radio "flapping"
Bug Fix: Random STA disconnects when encryption enabled in PTMP
Changed: The 5 GHz radio mode (master or client) is automatically determined by the 60 GHz radio mode (master or client)
Known Issue: the 5 GHz radio mode can be "locked" in a mode (master or client) which does not match the 60 GHz mode if the modes do not match before upgrading. To fix this, simply change the 60 GHz radio mode to match the 5 GHz radio mode, after which the 5 GHz radio will follow any changes made to the 60 GHz radio.
Known Issue: Instability for PTP links.
