I've just updated to the latest firmware - 6.29(ACCV.1) - on my NWA90AX, and noticed that you have changed the log format WITHOUT a single mention in the release notes of this.

for example, old log lines:
Station: AA:BB:CC:DD:EE:FF has disassoc by Unknown! on Channel
Station: AA:BB:CC:DD:EE:FF has associated on Channel:

new log lines:
Station: aa:bb:cc:dd:ee:ff left on Channel:
Station: aa:bb:cc:dd:ee:ff connected on Channel:

and this is only some part of what you changed.

Why did you change the log formats?

    Yea, sure. Mention it in the release notes if you have to change the logs with exact changes, but don't change it if it is not an absolute must. Your customers - including me - depending on the logs would go mad every time they have to update their environment because of your log changes.
