the other string is getting very loaded down with a lot of back and forth bickering, so I'm going to start this thread in the hopes (probably futile) that we can stay focused on documenting and working the issues with the new code.
1st thanks to D-Link for sending me the BETA patch within 15m of requesting, that was appreciated.
2nd i installed on all 3 of my units, so far so good
3rd I've noticed that the email function for system logs which did not used to work now works, which is an added benefit to the patch which i didn't expect
4th the interaction with ffp after fw upgrade has been changed. usually after doing a fw upgrade you have to reload ffp altogether. not so anymore, it's now in a weird hybrid state that sort of recognizes the config, but not really. the net result is that is has to be reloaded, but the behavior is different.
5th error messages in the syslog (Dlink syslog) are interesting, but not clear what they mean?

6th i'm now able to see my units from network and by name instead of having to type in IP address to get to them. this "broke" with the last fw release.
more to follow once i get them re funplugged and get access to the better syslog.
so far so good!!
