F5 APM Client Feature and F5 Edge Client Support on Mac OS X 10.11 (El Capitan)

With the anticipated release of Apple Mac OS X 10.11 on September 30, 2015, we (F5) wanted to provide a quick update on F5 APM client and Edge Client compatibility and support for Mac OS X 10.11. 

In general, F5 Edge Client will work with Mac OS X 10.11, just as it does with Mac OS X 10.10. A new version of Edge Client specifically for OS X 10.11 interoperability is not expected.  

However, F5 teams will test the Mac OS X 10.11 official release version.  If our testing uncovers major issues on this Mac OS X 10.11 version, and if a new version of Edge Client is required to address those issues, F5 will communicate that in advance. 

F5 will provide support for F5 Edge Client on Mac OS X 10.11 when it is officially released.  And, when Mac OS X 10.11 is officially released, we will update the compatibility matrices for the various BIG-IP versions.

  • hello Jay, when can we expect a redesign of that "legacy" Edge client. Soon it won't work anymore as Chrome, Firefox and other browser limit more and more plugins and remove libraries support that Edge (or Web NA access) is using?
  • F5 is working on a way to bypass the browser plug-in limitations and still provide Network access when user goes to a Browser. Stay tuned for timing.
