IntrusDave is right .. no news/rumors for ros7 here
Yes there was news!
One guy said they had been so busy on developing new hardware that they had not worked on version 7 so there was no progress.
This is a bit disappointing. One would hope that developing hardware and new software is done by different people.
(of course that means there also has to be a team that develops support for the new hardware in the existing software version)
My opinion still is that version 7 is the "project Longhorn" (Windows Vista) of MikroTik. Continuous remarks and (unofficial)
announcements about how great it will be, schedule slipping all the time, at some time drastic measures are taken to get the project
on the road again, something is released and it falls way short of all highly pumped-up expectations. This of course is then explained
as being caused by all the exciting new features that had to be dropped to get the product released.
Then, a new "version 8" has to be defined to clean the mess and restore the confidence.
I think the whole "we will rewrite everything and release it as the best version ever made" approach is a recipe for disaster.
Instead, they should just have released a new version 7 with "only" the new Linux kernel that is required as a foundation for new
features, and then incrementally release new features and software replacements (like the new routing engine) first as optional
packages and then incorporated in the standard release. This is the way it has always been done, and it worked.
