Available for All XTM Appliances
WatchGuard has released Fireware XTM OS v11.5.3 Update 1. This update is for appliance software only, and is intended to improve stability and provide additional key bug fixes for all XTM customers. For a list of issues resolved in Update 1, see the Resolved Issues section of our Release Notes. We recommend XTM v11.5.3 appliances administrators update to v11.5.3 Update 1 to take advantage of this update.
There are no updates to WatchGuard System Manager or any auxiliary software (such as Mobile VPN client software, Single Sign-On software, etc.). You can find more information about this update, and the issues it corrects, in the Release Notes.
Does This Release Pertain to Me?
Fireware XTM 11.5.3 Update 1 is designed to increase the stability of your XTM appliance, and to improve our product based on customer feedback. If you manage an XTM appliance running Fireware XTM OS v11.5.3 or earlier, we recommend you download and install v11.5.3 Update 1. Please read the Release Notes before you upgrade to understand what’s involved.
How Do I Get the Release?
XTM appliances owners who have a current LiveSecurity Service subscription can obtain this update without additional charge by downloading the applicable packages from the Articles & Support section of WatchGuard’s Support Center.

While I had no problems upgrading from 11.5.3 to 11.5.3 Update 1, it may be helpful for novices if you added to the Release Notes where to locate the build number so one could confirm the update was successful. Perhaps a “step 5” could be added to the two “Upgrade to Fireware XTM v11.5.3 from…” sections suggesting one confirm the build number located at the top of the Release Notes with the information located at:
Watchguard System Manager / Help / About Watchguard Software / Product / Installed OS Versions / Firewall XTM / “build number”
