Re: v6.43.7 [stable] is released!

Are there issues with DHCP Server not working after an upgrade like 6.34.4? We never heard back on that post and now the post is locked. Mikrotik support has ignored my emails for over a week on the issue we noticed with 6.34.4 and I'm wondering why. https://forum.mikrotik.com/viewtopic.php?f=21&t=1...
