Gluon 2016.2.5

This version contains only a single bugfix for a regression introduced in Gluon v2016.2.4. As the regression affects batman-adv compat 15 only, firmwares using the compat 14 legacy version don’t need to be updated.


  • Fix kernel crash with batman-adv compat 15 (d452a7c)

    An incorrect backport of a fix for a very improbable kernel crash caused a much more frequent kernel crash. The backport has been fixed.

    This bug a regression in Gluon v2016.2.4.

Known Issues

  • x86 sysupgrade (sometimes) loses config when kernel partition grows (#1010)

    This issue affects upgrades from v2016.2.x and older to the Gluon master only, we hope to fix it before the next major release.

  • 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.
