Where do I find the firmware release dates in a single list by product level

Whilst there is a list of Firmware versions under the downloads banner, there does not appear to be any definitive date when each version was released, so its not possible to tell if the later versions are hours, days, months or years older.

 

Sadly, I have hunted and drawn a blank so if anyone can point in the right direction, it woulsd be appreciated.

 

Thanks in anticipation.

Thank You - Yes.

 

But that requires opening every individual release note(s), just to find the date (which I think may not actually be the release date of the Firmware, but the latest date the note was updated).

True, but updates to release notes rarely happen, if ever.

 

Netgear's release notes are a bit of a joke. They are very bland in their statements "Security updates" is about all you get usually.

 

So the information in there is not much, and unlikely to change.

 

My beef is that they use the US's poxy date format. Confusing and hopeless if you try to sort a table.

 

 

Just another user with a set of boilerplate macros.

   If you don't like that, then I suspect that you won't like my
suggestion, either.  If I really wanted these data, then I'd fetch the
firmware kit(s), extract the contents, and use the date(s) on the

file(s) of interest found there.

   Info-ZIP UnZip offers a little flexibility on its date format, but
it depends on the OS, and, in many cases, is a build-time option, not a
run-time option.  For example (UnZip 6.00 on a Mac):

mba$ unzip6 -l D7000_FW_V1.0.1.54_1.0.1.zip
