New Features in UniFi 5.8.24 - HostiFi

New Features in UniFi 5.8.24 11 months ago

unifi-5-8-24-stable-released

At HostiFi we handle all UniFi updates and upgrades for our customers. Typically we keep our servers on the latest stable release, which, at the time of this writing, is 5.7.23.

As of last Friday however, 5.8.24 Stable has been released to the community.

This Friday, that release will be pushed to Ubiquiti’s download page and repos.

As such, we will be rolling out a HostiFi-wide upgrade next week from 5.7.23 to 5.8.24.

We figured that HostiFi subscribers would want to know what new features and bugfixes will be coming with the upgrade from 5.7.23 to 5.8.24, so we compiled a list of changes based on the release notes of each version between the two.

Which feature or bugfix are you looking forward to?
