Global search now supports extended IP and subnet search. If an IP or subnet doesn’t exist, you will now get a list of subnets where that IP or subnet can exist. This applies to both IPv4 and IPv6 IPs and subnets. Subnet search is supported with cidr notation, for example: 192.168.11.0/27.

IP as popup on device edit page

In earlier versions, you could only add a new IP from the device edit page (or assign a random one). We have now added an option to pick the IP from the IP page. This way, you can choose an existing IP or add a new one.

Auto-Discovery list pages enhancements
