Feels like I’ve been waiting for UniFi v5.5.x to make a Stable release for as long as I’ve been using UniFi. It has finally arrived!!
The list of changes from v5.4.x is massive. The biggest impact, IMO, is that nearly all of the deficiencies from Chris Sherwood’s (in)famous USG vs. EdgeRouter comparison have been addressed in v5.5.x. The USG remains far from perfect — for many SMB scenarios it is pretty close to unsuitable — but it has vastly improved over the past six months.
I’ll have my own write-up of where the USG shines, and falls short, in the coming weeks.
