Gluon 2017.1.1


  • The autoupdater manifest has been extended to allow automatic upgrades from old x86-kvm and x86-xen_domu systems to the new x86-generic image (869ceb4)

  • Make flash writable again on Ubiquiti PicoStations with certain bootloader versions (and possibly other devices) (9a787c9)

    Units affected by this issue running Gluon v2017.1 can’t leave config mode and no regular sysupgrades are possible. TFTP recovery is necessary to make them work again.

  • Add workaround to prevent sporadic segfaults of busybox (ash) when running shell scripts on ar71xx (#1157)

  • Disable batman-adv multicast optimizations to work around issue causing large amounts of management traffic (819758f)

    Multicast optimizations will be enabled again when a proper fix is available.

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.
