Gluon 2016.2.7

This release only fixes a single regression introduced in Gluon v2016.2.6, and add support for building using Perl 5.26.


  • Improve sysupgrade error handling (#1160)

    If for some reason processes don’t react to SIGKILL (usually because of a kernel bug), a node could hang forever in sysupgrade, requiring a power cycle. This has been fixed, triggering a reboot instead.

  • Backport fixes to support building with Perl 5.26 or newer (76753ed)

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 promicious 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.
