Dude - is there any IPv6 features/functions ?

Dude - is there any IPv6 features/functions ?

I'm currently in the process of switching from my old WhatsUp Gold network monitor system to something else because my 14 year old WhatsUp network monitor does not support IPv6.
So, yesterday I installed Mikrotik's Dude - and guess what … So far it appears that Mikrotik's Dude also does not have any IPv6 support :(

Either I need to further read the Dude documentation to understand how Dude supports IPv6
-or-
Am I correct in my findings so far that Dude knows nothing about IPv6 ?

Last time I checked, Dude's IPv6 support was zero. And lately changelogs are Dude-free, so I don't think there's anything new.
People who quote full posts should be spanked with ethernet cable. Some exceptions for multi-topic threads may apply.

Dude & IPv6

Ouch - zero IPv6 support - Why after all these years is there no IPv6 support in Mikrotik's Dude ?

IPv6 has been Draft Standard since 1998 ( more than 20 years ago ..)
IPv6 was was ratified as an Internet Standard in 2017 ( years ago … )
Dude has been out for 14 years. You would think that somebody at Mikrotik would implement IPv6 in Dude after all these years.
Today, the Internet uses/needs both IPv4 -and- IPv6

Dude is/was a decent IPv4 Network Monitor , but it's totally worthless as ISPs and WISPs implement IPv6 into their networks for their customers.

Hey Mikrotik - I've read multiple posts that IPv6 in Dude is on the To-Do list. Are there any this-year or any-year plans to implement IPv6 in Dude ? If so , any hint at a possible time-frame other than it's on a To-Do list ?
