Stable Candidate Release Firmware 25.9 now auto scheduled to upgrade *Update 25.9 now Stable*

Hi all

 

We are waiting for 25.9 to go stable release to implement on our production network, but noticed that all of our networks have been scheduled to auto firmware update to the stable release candidate 25.9 in 1-2 weeks time.  Are Meraki now auto updating client networks with stable release candidate firmware where it use to be just stable that got updated ?

 

Update:  25.9 has now gone from Stable Release Candidate to Stable

 

Cheers

For better or worse, Meraki needs 20% of their install-base to run the stable RC before they will mark it as stable.  My networks got auto-scheduled as well.  I think this is their way of "nudging" the release.

Kind of a big deal

Re: Stable Candidate Release Firmware 25.9 now auto scheduled to upgrade

All of the orgs I manage that were not already on 25.9 were auto scheduled last night. Perhaps 25.9 should already be called a stable release if it's hit the 20% mark, but at this point I'm not sure I believe Meraki follows the published firmware naming guidance anymore.

Note that 25.9 IS marked as a stable image (and not a stable release candidate).

When the notice was sent out, the image was still marked as Stable Release Candidate. Here the screenshot of this from the Dashboard that I left open since announcement.

 

However, its a good thing that they made it Stable, should provide assurance to many operators.

Yes, what he said.  It was still showing as SRC, not stable yesterday.  Good news now !
