Commencing November 18th, 2015, OpenDNS will begin the staged release of Umbrella Insights Virtual Appliance (VA) version 1.5.1. On Wednesday Novemer 18th 2015, customers on the early release stage track will receive the upgrade. Provided there are no issues seen on the stage release, all remaining customers will see their 1.4.9 VAs upgrade to 1.5.1 over the course of the next weeks. We expect this process to continue with small incremental chunks of customers being upgraded on any given day, with the process concluding on December 9th, 2015. Any changes to this schedule will be reported under these release notes.
UPDATE (November 30th, 2015): We have decided to halt the release of version 1.5.1 to more quickly incorporate fixes into an upcoming version, 1.5.2. The release of 1.5.2 should begin by mid-December.
If you are on either 1.4.9 or 1.5.1, there is no action. An update in the release notes forum will outline the release cycle for version 1.5.2 of the VA.
CHANGE SUMMARY (1.4.9 to 1.51)
- DNSCrypt now enabled in the VA by default (falls back to unencrypted if not supported).
- Better handling of network instabilities.
- Sync interval now configurable (defaults to 1 minute).
- Upgrades to multiple software packages within the VA.
