What happen with 6.21 ?

Sat Nov 01, 2014 11:13 am

What did happen with RouterOS 6.21 ? It appeared on the web site, and later, it seems to be revoked.

Since it was revoked, there must be a serious issue affecting real-world installations. Why there is no urgent and timely mail with the description of the situation and recommendation of what to do ?

Really disappointed (not by possible bug, but by handling of this).

Long time know that mikrotik not test updates, always doing shit, we who are the idiots who ever tested for them.
Forgive me, it has already passed the threshold long time.

Trying to move the thread to something more constructive.

Does anybody have a reference or a description of the bug ?
What is affected ? Is it safe to try to downgrade ?

I'll try to be more constructive, I will test not more.
If you read the other post you will know what I mean.

!NB! We have removed v6.21 from the download page due to upgrading issues from v5. Please use v6.20 until v6.22 is released early next week. We apologise for the inconvenience.

only using netinstall to resuscitate him.

I upgraded from 6.21rc to 6.22rc and the ccr got a kernel panic. i bootet the backup partition and recovered from that.

I used a handcrafted link to get 6.21, no issues so far.

When I have also apply RouterOS 6.22rc4 to CCR1009, and symptoms of the interface disappears,
it was possible to confirm the automatically restart takes problems when left for a while.

By switching back the same way partition ROS6.21, it was possible to avoid the problem somehow.

Just to be sure.

Upgrading ROS is not save at all. If you are happy with the installed release ...

v6.21 had problems on upgrade from RouterOS v5.x, it will go into reboot loop - netinstall solves the problem
if you upgrade from other v6.x all is OK (at least in my network)

I do not know why version was taken down, simple note about upgrade from v5 would be sufficient.
There are too many changes from v5 to v6 for simple upgrade, anyway.

P.S. Where are those people coming from that suddenly (after 2 years) decided to upgrade from v5 directly to v6.21 ? :)
With great knowledge comes great responsibility, because of ability to recognize id... incompetent people much faster.

Some wait until there is a 6.x Version that does not kill their router. They should have waited longer.

Some of the devices we get come with v5.xx pre-installed. Upgrading is always the first thing we do on those.

It is huge move, that, in my opinion, requires that you start with clean Netinstall, bios upgrade and new config, anyway.
So this issue shouldn't have no effect what so ever.

That explains a lot. Thanks!

Hello, netinstall doesn't work here.
I updated an SXT G-5Hnd which was using 5.26 to 6.22rc4.
Holding the reset button doesn't enter netinstall.
It keeps emitting the sound of Flashfig. No packets are emitted on eth1.

I have to speak in MT defence.

I Believe the method adopted by Mikrotik is the best for innovation. There are two options here that I see

You adopt the policy to develop a new version but test it on every possible scenario before release fix bugs test again etc etc ok you get a stable release but we would still be on ver4 by now NV2 etc still a pipe dream.

Or

You develop a new version with exciting innovative ideas, test it as much as possible in the Lab then release it in the knowledge that the best and fasted Beta test Lab in the world is the MT users themselves, bugs are quickly documented and a fix is released fairly soon after. Any MT user in a professional standing will know this and always stays a release or two behind and never upgrades on a critical router without testing first. The advantage is we have the latest tech quicker than anybody else. Ok you could release beta versions but there would not be the mass take up to fully test the version so quickly

Bit like formula 1, the race teams try out new ideas that eventually filter down to the every day car, Mikrotik being the formula 1 Race team of the routing world :-)

Keep it up Mikrotik I love the way you work and innovate, not afraid to try new ideas.

Version 6.21.1 is up on the download servers. Changelog lists version 6.20 from 2014-Oct-01 and 6.21.1 from 2014-Nov-03 12:46 with just one fix:

*) fixed ugprading from v5;

So is 6.21.1 just 6.20 with one fix or is it 6.21 with the fix on top of that?
