Model: OC200  
Hardware Version: V1
Firmware Version: 1.20.1 Build 20220921 Rel.35880

My OC200 (currently on version 5.6.4) is alerting me that new version 5.7.6 is available. 
This version does not seem to be announced on any forum, nor does a download seem to be available. (I never upgrade unless I can download firmware files manually to recover if there's an issue).

 

Is this release a mistake? Release notes below (as shown in the controller when trying to upgrade):

 

Built-in Omada SDN Controller v5.7.6

1. Added Dashboard for Hotspot Manager and adjusted the interface layout.

2. Added "Device Management Hostname/IP" option in Settings --> Controller --> Access Config. With this feature enabled, Omada Controller will advertise the controller's IP address or domain name to Omada devices in Connected status, and the devices will then attempt to communicate with the controller via the IP address or domain name.

3. Added support to send the Device Lists by Email in Settings --> Services --> Export Data.

4. Added support to "Check for Updates", which can be found via Settings --> Maintenance.

5. Added support for the following features to EAP, which requires firmware updates to be released later, except for the last one:

1) mDNS

2) PMF

3) Multicast/Broadcast Management

4) WPA-Enterprise supporting multiple RADIUS Authentication servers

5) Batch Config of ETH Port Settings

6. Added the Last Seen column to the Devices list.

7. To improve database performance, the "Delete Log" function and the maximum number of logs have been removed, and the logs are stored in two separate tables. Logs within 30 days are in the Current Logs table, while those older than 30 days are dumped into the History Logs table.

I see this all the time.  Firmware has been released and a post/changelog will be posted a day or 2 later.

 

Im not complaining, but just an observation.

  @KimcheeGUN Then I'll keep bringing the issue up.  I feel the last time they announced the SDN version, it was months before it was actually released for the controller.  Seems like a simple request; to simply put together (or update) a forum post with the changes and links to the firmware download before pushing it globally...

  @supermarkert It's available on the global "en" site https://www.tp-link.com/en/support/download/oc200/#Firmware.  Controller updates are universal I think so you can use these files from any region.  Usually local sites follow in the coming days.

There is a bug in the latest version... the controller says there is one unarchived alert in the web interface when you archive them all, nothing shows up as unarchived. But when you go to the app version, the one unarchived alert shows up.

  @dononeil yes i saw it today also. Logged in since a week or 2, got an update, and have the same log item that is not visible in the controller via ip adress.

 

by the way i am looking for a way to delete the complete arrchived log, and i have read the how-to, but no "brush" to empty it.
