We check every 3 months to see if there's a new firmware available for our Ruckus ZoneDirector 1200.  I notice that 10.x has been available for a while now, but ZD1200 9.13.3.0.133 is still the recommended firmware for the ZD1200.  Just wondering if there's any reason we should be holding off upgrading, or is there's good reason that Ruckus aren't "recommending" the newer firmware for our ZD1200?

Has anyone here made the leap and what has your experience of 10.x been so far?  Any regrets?

The 7363 is last supported by 9.12.3, so either 9.13/10.x will not be usable in your deployment.

We're updating to 10.1.1 where applicable, and no issues noted.

Oops... I meant ZD1200 and ZF7372... our ZF7363's are connected to our ZD1100, which are both EOL.

In that case, I would recommend 10.1.1.  9.13.3 is a solid choice if you want to be extremely conservative, but it has not seen a release in a couple months and as such will be behind on bug fixes.

If you want to become familiar with the Smart Zone GUI 10.1.1 is a good way to start and I believe the AP count increased

I just noticed that ZD1200's recommended firmware has now changed to 10.1.1.0.26 (MR1).  We'll be upgrading soon!

Thanks for the replies.
