Once the schedule is finalized, we will be sure to communicate it.

Community Highlights

Here are the conversations worth watching in the community:

R80.30 Early Availability Program is started! 

The update is that R80.30 Public EA is here! We plan to release this quarter. That said, more private EAs will help us release it faster!

This problem keeps coming up, particularly in fresh-installed R77.30 and earlier systems, for example in this thread: Problem with cluster access 75.40 VS . The above thread explains how to resolve the issue.

Adding members to a group (via CLI) 

An older thread where a more clever answer was posted.
