1. Before upgrading to the latest version, please backup the database under the main config folder first.

2. NR Pro v1.0 users do not need to apply the product key after upgrade to the latest version.

3. The latest version is backward compatible with NR Pro v1.0. But new features in the latest version may require upgrading both server and client software.

4. Tomato users may need to backup files under /jffs and restore them after upgrade the firmware, as the latest firmware is bigger enough to destroy the existing /jffs space.

We have just released NeoRouter Professional v1.2.0.2350.sp1 for server package on Linux distros (both i386 and x64), including CentOS, Fedora, SUSE and Ubuntu.

This is a service pack for fixing the critical bug in the NeoRouter server on Linux platform. The bug may cause NeoRouter server fail to accept connections from NeoRouter clients. The bug was introduced in the v1.2.0.2350 and previous versions do not have the issue.

It's highly recommeded to upgrade the NeoRouter server on Linux to the new build.
