Ekahau Site Survey version 8.7.0 released!

Ekahau released a new version of their brilliant site survey tool. You can find the download here.

Changelog Version 8.7.0

  • Copy & paste Wi-Fi planning (predictive design) elements: APs, walls, floor alignment points, etc.
  • Adjust heatmap opacity to make the floor plan more visible
  • Quick AP coverage toggling
    • Selecting an access point on the map view now automatically deselects the other access point(s)
    • This allows you to quickly toggle between each access point’s coverage when you are showing the visualization for the Selected Access Points
    • To select multiple access points on the map view, hold down the CTRL / SHIFT / CMD button or select the APs one by one on the left hand side Access Point List. You can also do the group selection with Edit-tool now!
  • Improvements for non-adjacent wall segment handling
    • Editing multiple wall elements simultaneously now applies only on the selected elements
    • Previously the change was also applied on the elements between the selected elements which practically made the whole multi wall edit unusable
  • Addition of Aerohive multi-radio logic
  • Other improvements:
    • ESS for Mac: Pinch-zooming now focuses on the cursor location
    • ESS for Mac: Redundant duplicate measurements from the OSX scanner are discarded
    • Cable notes are now drawn thicker and more visible in reports
    • Meraki multi-radio and SSID logic has been improved as much as possible
      • Due to how the OUI part of the BSSID changes between the SSIDs, it is currently not possible to implement 100% reliable multi SSID logic
  • Fixed issues:
    • Keyboard shortcuts for map panning and Edit-tool selection now work better on the map view
    • Exotic characters in the SSID name could cause reporting to fail
    • ESS for Mac: iPhones and iPads were mistakenly recognized as external active adapters
    • GPS tracking got stuck if GPS was toggled ON more than once in a session
    • Random JavaFX issue on the RTFM showing blank windows and errors
    • Mikko’s cracked Surface Pro 4 display, finally!!!
    • The issue with Jussi’s iPhone screen was fixed as well…but he dropped it AGAIN last week :-/
