MongoDB that isn't ancient?
Is there any plan to update the controller to support a version of MongoDB that isn't past EOL? Like ideally 5.x, so this doesn't happen again in a year?
I was just about to pull the trigger on some new EAP620s at work, but after attempting to spin up a test Omada controller and seeing this ridiculousness of needing Java 8 and MongoDB 3.x I'm strongly reconsidering this. I shouldn't have to make a custom install of an out-of-date OS to be able to install an out-of-date database to run a "modern" controller.
FWIW this isn't my first dance with TPLink, you may remember me as "DocJones" on the old forums; I helped figure out how to hack an external SSL cert into the software back in the day (when it was still just called "EAP Controller"). I was hoping that in the intervening years TPLink would've made some strides in software development but... I guess not?
