I think this is great news.
The parent company owns some brands which are pretty big time. DiGiCo is what a LOT of pro tours are using for their house and monitor consoles, and Allen & Heath makes a great line of mid-priced boards for smaller applications.
SSL is a classic transistor studio mixing board...

"Reedsburg, WI (October 14th, 2021) — Sound Devices has been acquired by Audiotonix, parent company to Allen & Heath, Calrec, DiGiCo, DiGiGrid, Group One Limited, KLANG:technologies, and Solid State Logic.
The move makes the multi-track audio recorder and field production mixer company the first North American manufacturer to come under the Audiotonix umbrella."

Indeed great news. I think it'll be business as usual for Sound Designs but will give them greater exposure and an even bigger name backing them.

Is the latest firmware glitch free? I haven't updated in a while and was thinking it's time.

I'm on 7.13 and haven't had any issues!

I've used 7.14 for several shows and I have experienced no issues.

I am on 7.14 since it came out, and use it as my main computer USB playback interface daily and it's alright.
I have recorded one live show on my MixPre6 since upgrading, with no ill effects other than I should remind you to check all menus and reboot the thing twice.
OH YEAH ok maybe one bug.
Headphone and/or line output might be borked unless you reset all settings or at least reboot twice.
I was trying to get a line out feed to my A10 as a backup, and it would not cooperate with regard to source selection until I power cycled it, I think.


Wingman app seems to work as expected.
