Sure, Linus Towards release Kernel 5 before ROS 7 has left Beta.....

Do you know anything about the "soon"?

I say it to know if to continue investing money in mikrotik or move to another brand ..

Well Christmas has come and gone for another year, my money is still on MUM Europe.

Even if it was realised then I would not put it into product for another 6 months until we've tested it heavily as the key features we're looking to have improved are BGP Performance, True Isolated VRF's and ipv6.

And hopefully some new ARM64-based hardware as CCR replacement.
Indeed. The CCR-line is a key product for many customers. It would be very welcomed with an refreshed version with similar number/type of interfaces.
There is no need to replace the hardware if MT upgrade to the latest Linux kernel which supports Tile arch. 4.14.x IIRC. It has a lot of new networking feature, like SRv6. It would be nice if ROS v7 moved to that kernel version...

What is the timeline?
if there is no cut-off date then it's just proof of concept for developers.
Alpha is exactly that - proof of concept (in a lot of ways)

They continue to work on 6.x, but 7 being a new kernel and everything means they have to make sure all existing functionality from 6.x is implemented and working properly with the major kernel changes (along with taking advantages of possible new efficient interfaces in the new kernels) so once they believe they've got a good working prototype, it'll move to Beta for public to help test.

Unfortunately, if we wanted to force their hand on v7 timeline/release schedule, they'd all but have to stop development on 6.x and that doesnt necessarily mean v7 will be quick, could you deal with 6 months+ of no further 6.x updates?

Software release cycles at the level of RouterOS are very time consuming things to get right. I'd rather have a good v7 then a rushed one.
There is no need to stop v6 development. It can continue as bugfix and relocate more development capacity to the future ROS versions if they wont want to stucked in v6 and v7alpha/insiderbeta.
The networking world growing dynamically and it won't wait to anybody who stops especially for years.
In my opinion the 3.x linux kernel is too old to satisfy the networking engineers needs in 2019...

Waiting for ROS v7 x64 too long...

Version v6 released in 2013. After 6 years still no ROS v7 x64 ...
>>> What's new in 6.0 (2013-May-17 14:04)

ROS v6 is based on too old kernel v3 which cannot satisfy 10% of networking needs in 2019 ...

ROS v7 should go directly for kernel v5 ... must have features must be:

1. x64 base version
2. BGP multi thread
3. Support for all new INTEL nics 10G, 40G, 100G

Such ROS v7 can have much higher price.

Don't hope any BGP Multithreading, because it is useless (bgp is slow because of Tilera cores, and multithreading route injection in FIB is a mess), i just hope for better routing filters, i have sooooo many problems with the current implementation...

We are currently evaluating alternative hardware for our BGP core as the Mikrotik OE hardware cannot support modem carrier requirements. Even with a CCR1072 we cannot run simple MPLS configuration without packet loss on route table updates.

Any recommendations on hardware would be appreciated - must have 4+ SPF+ ports. Something along the lines of http://www.lannerinc.com/products/netwo ... s/nca-4020

@krisjanisj: nice! :lol: I think you guys really missed the opportunity to stage the release of v7beta1 on 1st April.
You could even create fake NPK, fill it with some rubbish random content (to make reasonable size) and it wouldn't do anything except writing "april fools" in the CLI after the restart... (since its beta, nobody would be really hurt)

Re: v6 RC and v7 BETA

@vecernik87 I laughed about an idea to just re-brand latest v6 stable release as v7 and release it (with it showing up for example as v6.44.1(April Fools) as version while executing "/system resource print" command) last week with @reiniss2, but rather not provoke people and play with such things as this could go south really fast. When its gonna be ready - its gonna be released in proper beta format.

P.S wanted to change link to an image of this but rather not.

@normis

Any timeline you can announce for v7 I know there was meant to be an announcement at the recent MUM but unfortunately there was not.

I'm in the same boat as many others with bgp performance issues and really need a timeline that I can give to the CEO before I have to start looking at other vendors after using mikrotik for 15 years :(

Given the lack of clarity that the community has have for the last 10 years, don't expect anything in the short/mid term. Just do what you have to do to make your business running properly. ISV's and HW ODM/OEM's come and go. It's important that companies invest in products that have a clear line of direction, otherwise be ready to be nimble and adapt to whatever the market has that fulfill your needs.

All I can say is that development of v7 has picked up in the last few months, more than ever. While I can't promise anything stable, it is pretty safe to say, that some kind of public test release (like beta for specific platforms) could be expected this year. The chances of that happening are now higher than ever before, when similar promises were made.

Excellent news. I'm really enjoying the switching and VLAN use of RouterOS. Looking forward to Layer 2 security features.

Can say that comparing last few years the frequency of ROS v7 internal development builds in last few months, as noted by @normis, has increased by a lot (can't tell the precise numbers because I don't want to dive that deep into math).
So there's still hope that the unicorn status v7 has will be changed to something not as mythical.

Nice to see at least some reply regarding v7.

Just want to say when it's ready enough to release some alpha version, please do so. Even if it's missing some features or doesn't work on some hardware, it would still be great to get some real world testing results. I can imagine wireless and various embedded platforms may take a lot of work, so maybe as a first peek, CHR based on v7 might be the easiest way? That would allow us to test and discover any bugs and benchmark the routing and kernel network routines, on common virtualized hardware, taking custom hardware mostly out of the equation...

In all Honesty I think we need more than that to make us wait another year. Would it be too much to ask for a Video showing what the direction of ROS v7 so we can see what to expect as many of us are needing to change vendors sooner rather than later if we cannot improve certain features like BGP/MPLS/VRF @normis

Next Video Request, CPU load and MPLS VRF performance when route convergence occurs please. We cannot rung more than 1 MPLS VRF across our core of CCR1072 because of major packet loss inside the vrf every time the routing table converges.

Normus just said above that a beta will be available this year. I wouldn't expect the first release to be 100% complete. I would be happy to just test it out on my test network and non critical systems. :) File those bug reports and get it stable.

I suspect there is no too big jump if the leaked video is real and the allocated flash space is almost the same as on ROS6.
If you compare a compiled size of Linux kernel v3 and v4 with comparable configuration, v4 is significantly bigger.
And again if the leaked video is real the CLI is changed too and its more like API syntax ;)

I really hope they use v4 kernel, but MIkrotik is still selling devices with 16MB of flash (WHYYYYYYY you do this?!!!!)... so it's not looking good.
