Re: v6.29 released - No more inline comments?

Installed 6.29.1 on a router today and the inline comments selection is no longer there in the right hand drop down.
Whats up with that. Having the comments on a seperate line is confusing and annoying to look at.
Why would Mikrotik remove that?

Re: Cannot disable connection tracking.

Ok, A follow up.

We found that if there were entries in the address list, connection tracking forces itself on.
This is true even if none of the address list entries are being used.
As soon as I removed the address list entries, connection tracking turned off.
Still a bug, but this works around it.
