This is my expectation as well.I think there's a high risk that some architectures/platforms will be stuck on ROS v6 for flash-size and toolchain reasons. v7 will probably be ARM and x86_64 only, and will probably lack some features thats simply not portable (I guess MPLS- and tunnel stuff).
No worries, mate, just ship all your latest MT products to me I will take them off your hands and will pay shipping LOL. In Nova Scotia, we help you part with those things that are stressing you out. Its the least we can do. Things are so chill here.Wow this is the biggest blunder in the history of the internet.
Such a shame since RouterOS is great except for this problem with IPv6 in general.
This should be open sourced before they go under. Really it's pretty much to late.
I say open source RouterOS 7+ now or die. Release it for the community to make it work. At least they will be able to try and do something.
As long as they get what they need working, other parts can be addressed over time, and not by waiting over 10 years <SHOCKING>.
This is so bad I think you are really left with corruption as the only explanation, (trying hard not to be paranoid) that and incompetency that is not being addressed.
Incompetency can be resolved. Retardation of an entire corporation is mind boggling. No one is at the wheel.
Or get some financing to hire as many experts (all on here waiting for a decade) to add what seems like a simple enough thing.
Can I install https://dd-wrt.com/ DD-WRT on this RB4011 paper weight? Will a refund on my new RB4011 send the right message or should I hope my loses will help support a company that has passed the point of no return, and think maybe it will be usable in a few years,
If we get some kind of source we can replace or another company can maybe take charge. Can this be given to apache.org or something?
How can we as a community get Mikrotik to allow us to take the wheel and get shyt done!? Can we start a class action lawsuit? I'll sign it, I have losses due to negligence. We need to decentralize people. For the Grid with Arduinos or similar (I'm for WiFi GPUs in light-bulbs?).
A boycott? A petition? anything. Something to through a stone at maybe?
Okay so what's my alternative Cisco? Does their GUI need Java so lame or lamer are my two choices. Bummer. "It's mi way or the Huawei." [ No there out too. ]
I know this sounds like a rant but it feels like I'm drowning. So desperate to find real solutions. Best one I can think of would be to open source RouterOS.
Is this link below anything, a download archive of binaries or what? Is there a Git Repo for RouterOS. Who can explain why that is not possible? If not, I think I'm done, because 5 years ago was the time to act on this idea. It's really too late for even that. Just stop fixing ROSv6 it's dead without IPv6. Divert all resources to release even a borken alpha as soon as possible.
I've burned uncountable hour$ smeared over a number of months tracking down this horrible truth about RouterOS' grievous incompetency. It makes me & us look bad and has jeopardised many other companies with similar pointless losses too. [ It's no longer worth my time to pursue this route. ]
Okay so it's too bad it does not even make coffee but it probably has enough juice for that.
If Mikrotik sold to Google, Google would conclude to do the right thing and shut it down in about 9 days (a current statistical fact about google these days see Google+ etc.).
Can I get on a mailing list for when ROS7 is available just so in another 10 years I can have a good laugh?
Okay now I go get a couple of boxes of paper towels for my tears I'm drowning in.
My final thought to share is that we could have a mass burial. This idea will create a release deadline so on Bury Your Mikrotik Day say April 1st 2020 (joke is on us), we all just say a final goodbye together to a tragic death of a good friend, cut down in it's prime by what is best defined a stupid senseless crime against humanity.
Perhaps MT is counting down ... so next beta from the one shown in video (probably not current any more as @Normis hinted) was beta98 ... and so forth. So v7 will be released to public when count-down reaches beta1From the video:
7.00beta99 so long past beta1 as the title asks for
I have seen v6.99, when MT is working on the fix/debugging of some crash fixed on our routersPerhaps MT is counting down ... so next beta from the one shown in video (probably not current any more as @Normis hinted) was beta98 ... and so forth.

I'll just leave this here....

I can't imagine what Mikrotik stock would be like if they were public. The stock would be more volatile than TSLA based on public statements.dude, honestly i'm not here for the lulz. we work with business customers and we expect clear statements from MT so that we can plan our next hardware purchases.
I think the plan is very clear if you're dealing with Enterprise customers. The "It's ready when it's ready" statement says it all
dude, honestly i'm not here for the lulz. we work with business customers and we expect clear statements from MT so that we can plan our next hardware purchases.
Unfortunately some of us are in such a scenario where we must decide to work on a custom firmware solution for Routerboard devices or spend the money replacing all Mikrotik hardware.I don't mind replacing everything tomorrow for something else that fulfill my needs.
I fully agree. "It's ready when it's ready" is what a hobbyist writes. Or a beginner.The "It's ready when it's ready" statement says it all
Just like Google, btw.This "It's ready when it's ready" approach is something that shouldn't be part of your PR if you are an enterprise company. If so, then your management is seriously lacking.
HW products by Mikrotik are mostly fine. It's mostly software which makes us sometimes unhappy. ROS7 is, after all, software which will, hopefully, run on our existing HW. All in all, this is not that far from what we expect from google ... only that for google's services you most of times pay with personal data and for Mikrotik's services you pay with hard cash and electricity ... and receive back some heat (you can't say that about google's services).Agree, yet Google is not selling any enterprise HW products and no customers are planning any new infra deployments based on their hw etc...Just like Google, btw.
I was talking about Google Cloud Services. You pay for it in cash alsoonly that for google's services you most of times pay with personal data and for Mikrotik's services you pay with hard cash and electricity ...
Well that sounds better (but still no heat in exchange I guess). Unlike majority of inhabitants of Earth I value my own personal data and choose to pay with cash ... it's much easier to decide if something is worth the price or not ...I was talking about Google Cloud Services.

Omg, just ordered rb4011 and I thought something is seriously wrong.Such a shame since RouterOS is great except for this problem with IPv6 in general.
What an awesome slogan for Mikrotik!It's getting closer every day!
Don't use that example, we all hope that it will not be vaporware like Windows Phone..."Trust in Mikrotik! What you're waiting for is getting closer every day!" TM
Microsoft tried patenting that for Windows Phone/Mobile, but Mikrotik got there first
Well, it really showed that Microsoft thrives only on existing installed base.Windows Phone was not vaporware, it was real ... shit. And that's why it disappeared real soon ...
Indeed we don't want to see the same thing happen to RouterOS.Well, it really showed that Microsoft thrives only on existing installed base.Windows Phone was not vaporware, it was real ... shit. And that's why it disappeared real soon ...
In a "new market", it really stands no chance against the competition.
However, what I meant is that the platform has almost (and also completely) disappeared many times, with the proponents clinging onto a promised new version time after time.
And every time it failed to deliver. We would not want that same thing happen to RouterOS...
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.
