Software Update: RouterOS 7.1.5

Spread the love

MikroTik has released two new versions of RouterOS in quick succession, an operating system that focuses on running router tasks† This includes routing network traffic, of course, but also bandwidth management, a firewall, controlling wireless access points, a hotspot gateway and a VPN server. It can be done on the hardware from MikroTik when doing its job on x86 or virtual machines. Before use, a license required, which is included with the purchase of MikroTik hardware.

Version 7.1 is the first stable release in the highly anticipated version 7 of RouterOS. Several new features have been added and the performance has also been significantly improved. Not all sharp edges have been removed from the software yet, so it is recommended that you read up on it before making the switch. The changelog since version 7.1.3 looks like this:
