AREDN Release

AREDN Release

Since version was released in August, over 50 nightly builds have been released. So the dev team decided that it was time for another production release. While many of them were small tweaks, some were significant. Here’s a summary:

UI (web page) updates.

Many updates were made to the UI (web pages) to increase usability and provide additional information. Some highlights:
  •     Added NTP update period to basic setup page - can now choose between daily and hourly updates    
  •     Now display host totals rather than OLSR totals     
  •     Added search capabilities to the Mesh Status page     
  •     Grouped Mesh RF info if WiFi is enabled     
  •     Both types of gateways on Status page now displayed    
  •     Added a warning when attempting to add extra packages to 32 MB nodes 
  •     Added help link to pages missing it.
  •     Changed support link to button
  •     Updated help file for new Advanced Config format
  •    Simplified Advanced Config display
  •     Added units to Setup and Advanced Config pages

Miscellaneous fixes and updates
  •     Optionally include static routes (and preserve them across upgrades)     
  •     Added support for extra network links to OLSR     
  •     Included wireguard packages in the repo
  •     Fixed recoverymode script (didn't work correctly)
  •     Stopped a node from including itself in its LQM neighbors
  •     Fixed bad match for NAT DHCP addresses.
  •     Added a wifi scan trigger for when the "nodes detected" count becomes zero (resets wifi)
  •     Added a snapshot of hostnames after OLSR updates so we have a consistent copy to display on Mesh Status page
  •     Advertised services:
    • Determination logic updated
    • Added more 3XX redirects + 401 authentication
    • If redirect ends at an https link, assume it is valid


If you’re curious, the changes are listed in the AREDN Changelog:

Given the improvements in behavior, performance, and usability this production release provides, users are encouraged to upgrade their node(s).
