Gluon 2017.1.7


  • Fix boot failure on many Ubiquiti devices (#1370)

    A kernel update in Gluon 2017.1.6 led to boot failures on Ubiquiti Airmax M2/M5 (NanoStation, Bullet, etc.) if the device had been running AirOS 5.6 before installing Gluon/OpenWrt. The XW hardware revision is unaffected.

    While the root cause is a bug in Ubiquiti’s bootloader, the issue is mitigated in Gluon 2017.1.7.

Known issues

  • Default TX power on many Ubiquiti devices is too high, correct offsets are unknown (#94)

    Reducing the TX power in the Advanced Settings is recommended.

  • The MAC address of the WAN interface is modified even when Mesh-on-WAN is disabled (#496)

    This may lead to issues in environments where a fixed MAC address is expected (like VMware when promiscuous mode is disallowed).

  • Inconsistent respondd API (#522)

    The current API is inconsistent and will be replaced eventually. The old API will still be supported for a while.

  • Frequent reboots due to out-of-memory on weak hardware in larger meshes (#1243)
