Does the beta version 31.1.1 contain all of these fixes/new features found in this stable release candidate version 30.7 ?... as the release notes show much fewer fixes in the 31.1.1...

I'd suggest not as it came out some time earlier (I was testing it before release), but I cannot be certain!

Still no listed fix for the MR36H panic that causes it to reboot multiple times per hour. Disappointing, we may have to roll back to our MR30H units if it isn't fixed soon.

Good to hear Meraki releasing new update.

My customer site is running 30.6 firmware on several dozens of MR36. I found that client count under Monitor>AP>Performance page from multiple AP, it showed more than 30 clients vary up and down on a Saturday in an office. But there is no client at all from the Summary page of that particular APs. The wifi network had just launched for less than 2 months from new purchase. I already found there were more wrong showing of statistics in other areas. Opened TAC cases for days and no one know how to fix it. I am very frustrated by these non-sense statistics. Can 30.7 firmware fix that issue?
