ETA on new GA R80.20 Take ? (>T47)

Jump to solution

Is there any estimate when we can expect a new GA take for R80.20?
Take 47 has been around for a looong time now...

We really need a few of the fixes in T73, but are hesitant to go down the ongoing-take path...

Afaik from CP Engineers, it had been planned to make JT 80 GA - but the important fixes in JT 87 have changed the situation completely ! See the line:

PRJ-2374 Gaia OS CVE-2019-11477, CVE-2019-11478 & CVE-2019-11479: TCP SACK PANIC - Linux Kernel vulnerabilities. Refer to sk156192.

Makes sense.

Although it would be prudent to have a GA fix for TCP SACK mitigation pretty soon.
I will try to procrastinate the issue and hope a GA release will come in the near future.

This i think is the reason - JT 80 without this TCP SACK mitigation HF included would be a bad GA version - so our next hope for Jumbo GA is JT 87 😉

Does anybody know the procedure for "blessing" a Jumbo/Take? (Making it GA)
Is it only internal testing and QA, or are they waiting for a set number of customers to install/test it?

We see that all production environments are - at least a little - different, so a Jumbo HF with the title GA needs a broad installation base over a longer time as well as continued internal testing. "Very stable" seems more a feeling evolving over time 😊

Any Ongoing Jumbo Take can be history after one bug report, look here:

I think we had this in the past with the ServerSmack/SegmentSmack which was first standalone then integrated. The main issue here is that R80.20 has been long time without GA HF, and a good deal of clients have issues where they're told to install an ongoing take, which they see as unstable/unfinished patches.

any word on a new Jumbo Take for R80.10 which will include the TCP SACK fix ?     I'd prefer to fix this as part of a jumbo update than apply a hotfix.
