We semi-retired our 501's and 506e's from several locations due to no v7 OS from
Cisco for them. We also allowed our SmartNet accounts to expire. Has Cisco
released a version of 7 that will run on them? If so, we'll pay for SmartNet
again and upgrade, otherwise I guess we'll just ebay them and be done with it.

Thanks...

No, and people around here have pretty much stopped talking about it
so I would speculate that the people with NDAs aren't getting anything
solid either (e.g., not even betas.) But I'm not under NDA so I'm
just going by the rumour mill.

Today I heard a presentation of a Cisco technician. He stated clearley that
there will be no V7 for the 501 nd 506 boxes. He said further that some of
the V7 features will likely be incorporated in some later V6.x versions.
