While we encourage everyone to use up-to-date software, the old defaults will still be available till the next software refresh, in case some users prefer to use the old defaults. The software refresh is usually made during the scheduled downtime, while we will send out notifications to all users ahead of time for any questions/suggestions/concerns.
