@Netduma Fraser over at the Netduma Forums is hinting that there is/will be an announcement next week regarding DumaOS (I assume)
The announcement was supposed to be 29th August, but this has slipped to the following week.
A few fixes long over due we all hope

I am still following the NetDuma Forum and apart from the usual forum banter (me being polite) it is now looking like the XR500 will be either receiving an update (Netduma) or news will be released regarding 1.4 Release around Christmas time.

The Future of DumaOS: Version 3.0 (from Netduma )
Last year we released our first major update for DumaOS, Milestone 1.3. You guys loved it, so we quickly got to work on the next milestone, packing it full of features to make your router even more powerful.
This next milestone will instead be a new version, DumaOS 3.0, and it marks the biggest leap forward in our history. It will contain a huge amount of features never seen before on a router. Instead of just sending out each of the features piece by piece, we needed to wrap them all up into one giant release. We will explain why soon 😉 (but don’t worry, we’re not doing an EA!).
We know you guys will want to get your hands on 3.0 as soon as possible and we are working very hard to make this happen. But until we are sure, the release date is ‘to be confirmed’. But in the meantime, here is a teaser one of the many features coming to your router in 3.0: Data History
With Data History you can see how much bandwidth you’ve used over time and drill-down to see which devices and/or applications are eating up all your data or find out how many hours you spent gaming over the weekend. If you are under a data cap, you can also see if you are nearing your monthly limit.
This is just a small glimpse into 3.0. We will be gradually revealing more features over the next few weeks so keep an eye out for more announcements.
One final thing, we launched DumaOS Insiders yesterday. This will be a private subforum where we share first-looks at features we are currently working on and using your feedback to shape them. There are only a few spaces left, so sign up here if you haven’t already: https://forum.netduma.com/topic/29480-sign-up-to-dumaos-insiders/
Big things are coming.
Thank you for your support.

Alas I visited the https://forum.netduma.com Forum this morning and as yet still no Netduma/Netgear update for the Netgear XR500
Alas, I have a feeling they (Netduma) are going to end up going down the same route as ASUS did for their DSL products.
Good idea (DSL) > Join Forum (ASUSVIP) and have ASUS Reps) > Get hammered for poor quality (hardware/firmware) > ASUS DSL Reps no longer visit Forum > Forum eventually a non entity as are their DSL Products.
A little blinkered view I admit, but this is a business model not ideally suited for the online Gaming community

I agree .. no major update for Netgear XR500 in last 11 Months
DSL Products – i wonder reason of lack of support from manufacturer is no binaries from chipset manufacturer ? + ASUS don’t see much future in DSL based products when future is based on fiber optic ? so investing huge in R&D of DSL would not generate enough profits for them compare to number of DSL units sold …..
+ OEM modem manufacturer ISP select’s are already providing ok connection to majority of ISP users ?
Note: This Is Personal OpinionJanuary 24, 2020 at 1:55 pm #5854
Lots of Countries/Regions still use DSL (UK – Australia – Middle East ) but agree the future is Fibre and 5G etc.
Shame for us DSL (FTTC/FTTN) users currently

i wonder why ISP are not upgrading you guys to GPON ?
when 5G will go live ..prob it will be faster than current VDSL 17a profile ( but data caps )January 24, 2020 at 2:44 pm #5858GrisuParticipant

Because it is very very expensive for operators to run fibre from fttc to every single home all over the country. Maybe different in multi-story dwellings. But 50% of people here in the middle of EU live in single-family houses.January 24, 2020 at 3:00 pm #5860

AS @Grisu said, time and money, big job and we are all poor ;-)
But yes, data caps will be the interesting factor for 5G, as if no caps, this is my next preferred upgrade option

thanks @Grisu and @UK SentinalJanuary 27, 2020 at 12:40 pm #5872
The link does not work, but reading the URL sounds promising for Fibre Rollout in UK
DSL is old news nowadays and Fibre has so much potential.
