What do you mean? We have been very open about it.
Can you please define the definition of transparency? I'll save you some time, "the quality or state of being transparent".
All you have told us since 2015 goes along the lines of "v7 is currently in internal testing, and will be released as beta when it's stable enough"
I don't like being direct, but what Mikrotik is doing to people who've spent years around Mikrotik hardware, certifications and dedication is wrong. You're hurting not only Mikrotik by not being transparent or forthcoming, you're hurting us.
Items YOU need to address:
1) A graph or document indicating the current status of RouterOS v7.0, even if the features are in flux.
2) Missing standards which will not be targeted in RouterOS v7.0, i.e. VXLAN
3) Update the community with facts and projections on current development
This whole situation would be made easier if Mikrotik had a developer program to work on an open source side project. It would not be hard to set up a lab, virtualization platform or real testing hardware for those who want to be serious about contributing.
