Is there a good way to review you firewall against the release notes of the upgrades that you are considering? I have been reading them and in order to avoid issues moving to 7.06 (TACS recommended most stable version) I should do an intermediate of 7.01 because of cert issues that would be caused by going directly to 7.06 from 6.1.11
That's a tricky question. Upgrades are intended to only fix things and not break them ;)
In each release note, however, there is a list of 'known issues'; this is the list of issues we are aware of that could pose a problem, so it's recommended to review these before proceeding.
There is also a list of changes to default behavior, if you're upgrading from one major version to the next, that would be of interest to make sure everythig keeps working as expected
Anything that is not listed is either being investigated, being fixed or not known to us yet, but if we do find a glaring issue that would affect many customers we do send out notifications through all channels (emails, community posting on the Live main page,...)
hope this helps
There is documentation on 'known issues' for software releases. For example, below are all of the current known issues for 7.1.
