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?

    Hi there,

    At the latest firmware - 6.29(ACCV.1), we improve log wordings more clear and friendly, make it easier for users to understand and more detail information for troubleshooting.
  • 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.
