Gluon v2020.1.3

Bugfixes

  • Fixes a bug in musl which can lead to spurious crashes in fastd and other programs, which alternate between single- and multi-threaded operation. (#2029)
  • Fixes a regression which led to around 2.5 MiB higher memory usage for ar71xx-tiny and ramips-rt305x targets. While this decreases the memory usage, the image will become around 64KiB larger. (#2032)
  • Fixes a bug which can cause the TP-Link TL-MR3020 v1 to become stuck in failsafe mode.

Other changes

  • Linux kernel has been updated to 4.14.180

Known issues

  • High chance of ending in a soft-bricked state for Ubiquiti EdgeRouter-X. Workaround is to repeat initial installation using the serial console. (#1937)

  • Out of memory situations with high client count on ath9k. (#1768)

  • The integration of the BATMAN_V routing algorithm is incomplete.

    • Mesh neighbors don’t appear on the status page. (#1726)
      Many tools have the BATMAN_IV metric hardcoded, these need to be updated to account for the new throughput
      metric.
    • Throughput values are not correctly acquired for different interface types.
      This affects virtual interface types like bridges and VXLAN.
  • 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.
