From the latest Mikrotik newsletter
While troubleshooting an issue this morning I went to upgrade the routerboard firmware on a CCR after bringing it up to 6.42. The upgrade-firmware now appears to match with the router-os version.

Now, if Mikrotik would just provide release notes on the routerboard firmware in a handy place.
Periodically Mikrotik updates the routerboot part of their routerboards. This is the firmware on the board responsible for the bootloader.
The routerboard at the USA Mikrotik User Meeting (MUM) this year was the wAP. For the official specifications on this little gem visit here. Some highlights of this AP.
As you can see a great deal of thought was given into the included parts with this unit. Mount, screws, poe, and even a thick paper template for drilling the wall and ceiling mount.
Whomever is in charge of package and documentation design at Mikrotik gets high marks in my book for this setup. Included is a little instruction sheet which has topics for first use, powering, booting, connecting are all included on the first page in a concise manner. On the second page instructions on netinstall, bootloader, and even enabling CAPs mode are all explained.
At a street price of $45 for this model these have many uses. Outbuildings, work shops, patios, and many other places where an AP needs a little protection from the elements, are all good deployment choices.
