This is the first release of Gluon in 2020, based on OpenWrt 19.07. It introduces the ath79 target, which will replace ar71xx in the short term.

Removed hardware support¶
|||(1, 2, 3, 4) The kernel partition on this device is too small to build a working image.|
Gluon v2020.1 is the first release to use OpenWrt 19.07. All targets therefore use Linux 4.14.166.
batman-adv compat v14 removal¶
Support for the long deprecated compat 14 version of batman-adv has been dropped. Communities still using this version should migrate to batman-adv using the scheduled domain switch.
IBSS wireless mesh removal¶
Support for the IBSS wireless protocol has been dropped. Communities still using IBSS are suggested to migrate to 802.11s using the scheduled domain switch.
We install zram-swap by default on
ar71xx devices with 8MB of flash
and 32MB of RAM.
ipq40xxtarget was renamed to
ipq806xtarget was renamed to
- Gateway nexthop information has been added to the statuspage when batman-adv is used. This includes its MAC address and prettyname as well as the interface name towards the selected gateway.
- The site name has been added to the statuspage. If the node is in a multidomain setup it will also show the domain name.
X86 partition size¶
The x86 partition size has been reduced to fit on disks with a capacity of 128 MB.
We have added several new aliases for autoupdater compatibility on the following devices:
- Ubiquiti UniFi AC LR
- Raspberry Pi
GLUON_WLAN_MESHvariable can be dropped, as 802.11s is the only supported wireless transport from now on.
Support for linter make targets was added.
make lint-shto only check shell scripts
make lint-luato only check lua scripts
These require the shellcheck and luacheck tools. The docker image has been updated accordingly.
We have implemented continuous integration testing using Jenkins and thereby
ensure that all lua and shell scripts are linted, that the documentation
still builds and warnings are highlighted, and that Gluon still
compiles, by testing a build on the
x86_64 target. We expect this to
significantly improve the feedback cycle and quality of contributions.
