Re: RouterOS v7.0 beta1 - when?

I just want to let everyone know, that v7 is progressing pretty good this year, and most core functionality is usable. Some more difficult parts need to be done and we can release a public beta.

Re: RB3011 Optimal Operating temperature

No, the temp reading is telling you the CPU temperature, not the ambient temperature

Vecernik, Groove should not be melted or damaged if you bake it in 69C :) it's a normal temperature in Dubai sun, not really oven temperature.

Re: RB3011 Optimal Operating temperature

The given ranges are ambient/air temperatures at which the devices have been tested and used without any effects on performance. Outside these ranges, the device performance starts to be affected. This is what the range tells you.
