Are you looking to learn Mikrotik in a virtual environment? Check out Vultr.com.
For those of you who may not have seen the Mikrotik 60ghz dishes. Here are some screenshots.
I did an overall video of the New Mikrotik RouterOS v7.
From Mikrotik forum: https://forum.mikrotik.com/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=152003
We have released a very limited test variant of RouterOS v7. Currently only available for ARM systems with a slightly limited feature set.
What is currently unlocked / available:
– Only available for ARM architecture
– Based on Kernel 4.14.131, which is currently the latest and most supported LTS version
– New CLI style, but compatible with the old one for compatibility
– New routing features, but see below
– OpenVPN UDP protocol support
– NTP client and server now in one, rewritten application
– removed individual packages, only bundle and extra packages will remain
Other features not yet public.
What is not available:
– BGP / MPLS disabled
– Extra packages
– Winbox does not show all features, use CLI for most functionality
DO NOT USE IT FOR ANYTHING IMPORTANT, THIS RELEASE IS STRICTLY FOR TESTING AND DOES CONTAIN BUGS

Announced at The Russian MUM
Currently only available for the arm processor. This supports my long running theory on the inability to get the dev tools for the Tilera processor is why v7 has been delayed so much.
More coming soon
Farm progress show 2019. Mikrotik 60 ghz backhauling between WiFi nodes. Wireless wire cluster for high Bandwidth customers. 5ghz for smaller bandwidth customers.
What’s new in 6.45.2 (2019-Jul-17 10:04):
Due to removal of compatibility with old version passwords in this version, downgrading to any version prior to v6.43 (v6.42.12 and older) will clear all user passwords and allow password-less authentication. Please secure your router after downgrading.
Old API authentication method will also no longer work, see documentation for new login procedure:
*) bonding – fixed bonding running status after reboot when using other bonds as slave interfaces (introduced in v6.45);
*) cloud – properly stop “time-zone-autodetect” after disable;
*) interface – fixed missing PWR-LINE section on PL7411-2nD and PL6411-2nD (introduced v6.44);
*) ipsec – added “connection-mark” parameter for mode-config initiator;
*) ipsec – allow peer argument only for “encrypt” policies (introduced in v6.45);
*) ipsec – fixed peer configuration migration from versions older than v6.43 (introduced in v6.45);
*) ipsec – improved stability for peer initialization (introduced in v6.45);
*) ipsec – show warning for policies with “unknown” peer;
*) ospf – fixed possible busy loop condition when accessing OSPF LSAs;
*) profile – added “internet-detect” process classificator;
*) radius – fixed “User-Password” encoding (introduced in v6.45);
*) ssh – do not enable “none-crypto” if “strong-crypto” is enabled on upgrade (introduced in v6.45);
*) ssh – fixed executed command output printing (introduced in v6.45);
*) supout – fixed supout file generation outside of internal storage with insufficient space;
*) upgrade – fixed “auto-upgrade” to use new style authentication (introduced in v6.45);
*) vlan – fixed “slave” flag for non-running interfaces (introduced in v6.45);
*) wireless – improved 802.11ac stability for all ARM devices with wireless;
*) wireless – improved range selection when distance set to “dynamic”;
Some of you may have noticed a new menu item pop up in winbox labeled dot1x
Dot1x is implementation of IEEE 802.1X standard in RouterOS. Main purpose is to provide port-based network access control using EAP over LAN also known as EAPOL. 802.1X consists of a supplicant, an authenticator and an authentication server (RADIUS server). Currently both authenticator and supplicant sides are supported in RouterOS. Supported EAP methods for supplicant are EAP-TLS, EAP-TTLS, EAP-MSCHAPv2 and PEAPv0/EAP-MSCHAPv2.
Looking at how to use this?
