Barracuda Email Security Gateway Release Notes - Version 8.0

Please Read Before Updating

Before installing any firmware version, be sure to make a backup of your configuration and read all release notes that apply to versions more recent than the one currently running on your system.

Note that updating to this release may cause you to lose any patches that have been installed by Barracuda Networks Technical Support onto your system. Please check the version details below to verify that the bug number for your issue is marked as fixed in the version that you are trying to install (or an earlier one) prior to installing.

Do not manually reboot your system at any time during an update, unless otherwise instructed by Barracuda Networks Technical Support. Depending on your current firmware version and other system factors, the update process could take up to 10 minutes. If the process takes longer, please contact Technical Support for further assistance.

Before updating, BE SURE TO TAKE THE BARRACUDA EMAIL SECURITY GATEWAY OFFLINE. This will ensure that the inbound queue is emptied and all messages are scanned before the update process begins. See the BASIC > Administration page for the Offline button.

Updating to Version 8.x

WARNING: After clicking the Apply Now on the ADVANCED > Firmware Update page, the progress bar may appear to time out and the administrator may need to manually return to the login screen after 5 minutes if it doesn't load automatically in the browser.

Fixed in Version 5.1

Version 5.1.3

The 5.1.3 firmware series was developed in parallel to the 6.0.x firmware series, and as such all fixes in 5.1.3 may not be in or even apply to the 6.0.x firmware. Relevant fixes from 5.1.3 will have been included starting with the 6.0 firmware series, so to prevent possible confusion the list of specific changes that went into 5.1.3 are not listed here. However, a complete list may be found in the release notes for the latest 5.1.3 release (5.1.3.007).
