Gluon 2018.1.2


  • Fix a bug leading to missing IPv6 addresses in respondd announcements (#1523)

    The pattern that was used to match addresses from /proc/net/if_inet6 did not expect interface indexes growing past two characters.

  • Mark ipq806x target as broken for unstable client WiFi (#1505)

    Station connections to the QCA9880 radio on the TP-Link C2600s are frequently disconnected, leading to an abysmal user experience.

  • Fix button behaviour on FRITZ!Box 4020 (#1544)

    Buttons were triggering an instant reboot into config mode, fix by setting buttons to active low instead of active high.

  • Prevent caching of redirects on config mode and status page (#1530)

    As the path to both config mode and status page were changed between versions users could be affected by a redirect to a no more valid URL.

  • batman-adv has received two bugfixes, which were backported from v2018.4

Other changes

  • Linux kernel has been updated to v4.4.153

Known issues

  • Missing kernel module dependencies prevent batman-adv from being loaded on devices without WiFi drivers (#1578)

  • 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 or high load due to memory pressure on weak hardware specially in larger meshes (#1243)

    Optimizations in Gluon 2018.1 have significantly improved memory usage. There are still known bugs leading to unreasonably high load that we hope to solve in future releases.
