At long last, the RC is out and available to customers with active maintenance. If you are interested in participating - drop me a note with your SWID and we'll get you set up.
Things to try out/look for in this RC:
Improved Policy Reporter – interface-level policy checking, improved performance, and a completely new web interface and workflow. Import and export reports to your hard drive plus thwack integration enables sharing both inside and outside the organization. Additionally, a syntax checker allows you to see how rules will be applied to a chosen config. What we're working on... the live edition: NCM Improved Policy Reports.
Support for multiple config types – backup and restore configs of whatever type you prefer.
Comprehensive Ipv6 support.
Improved inventory management – performance has been greatly enhanced (our internal tests showed an over 8x improvement).
Additional device templates - Motorola WS5100 WAP and ES3000 switch devices, Ericsson switches, Meru network controller, and many others are now supported.
Again, simply send me a message if you are interested, and we'll get you set up. The RC is a fully-supported version.
