New - RAX200 Firmware version 1.0.10.140_1.0.79 Released

Currently stuck on 1.0.5.132 due to the DNS bug with OpenVPN, but seeing 1.0.10.140_1.0.79 offered, and I can't find any user feedback on it. Release notes before updating show:

 

Release Notes:
 1.   [New Features] Adds support to EU SKU for Router Analytic (RA) opt-in, opt-out feature.
 2.   [New Features] Removes support from China SKU for gaming VPN Funjsq.
 3.   [New Features] Time machine backup function is no longer supported due to security issue fix.
 4.   [Security Fixes] This firmware addresses security vulnerabilities. For more information about security vulnerabilities, visit https://www.netgear.com/about/security.
 5.   [New Features ] Support Japan IPv6 DS-Lite, MAP-E..
 6.   [Changes] Reduced unnecessary DDoS message printed at logs.
 7.   [Bug fixes] Fixed a bug where after enabling Open VPN function, DNS resolution function will become abnormal.
 8.   [Security Fixes] This firmware addresses security vulnerabilities. For more information about security vulnerabilities, visit https://www.netgear.com/about/security.

 

#7 looks like it finally addresses the DNS issue, so I'll try updating to it after backing up my settings again.

You can manually download it from the support site and manually install it.

I'd make a backup in case you do want to downgrade. Then you could downgrade, factory reset, and reinstall your backup and be back where you started if it didn't work well for you.
