Release notes for AREDN nightly build 2017 and later

 

Nightly build 2017 is based on the latest OpenWRT release, version 22.03.2. (The current AREDN production release is based on OpenWRT 19.07 from January 2020). 

There are significant changes in this nightly build:

  • All devices have been moved to the ath79 device tree (no more ar71xx).

  • The ipq40xx device tree has been added.

  • Each device now has its own image file.

  • Some filenames have been changed.

 

As a result devices need to be tested carefully, at least initially.

 

The most current status on nightly builds can be found in the README file here:

http://downloads.arednmesh.org/snapshots/readme.md

 

While this release has been tested on more than 90% of device types active on AREDN networks, it could not be tested on everything and support for some devices is either untested or not readily available. If you need a nightly build that’s missing please let us know and we will add it if possible (but you will need to provide hardware for development and testing).

  •     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

AREDN production release 3.22.8.0  is now available
 

The AREDN development team has shifted into high gear with this third release of 2022!  This production release adds the many fixes and enhancements made since 3.22.6.0

Fixes

  • Dealt with LAN on AR300M always having the same MAC address.
  • Fixed default DHCP limits in NAT mode if fields are blank.
  • Fixed a "do not propagate" issue when reserving DHCP names.
  • Fixed tactical names.
  • Fully validate node and tactical names; give better messages when invalid.
  • Prevent < and > from being used in service names.
  • Correct map update claiming success when it actually fails.
  • Added device definition for Ubiquiti PBE M5 300-ISO.
  • Some Ubiquiti Powerbeams: keep 100MB as the only port speed, but let the port auto-negotiate with the switch to fix throughput issues.
  • Fixed display of unknown radio models.

Enhancements

  • Added a service alert icon.
  • Adjusted the Administration page display. (advanced WAN moved to AdvConfig page)
  • Added changeable WAN VLAN support to the Mikrotik hAP and AR300M.
  • Allowed display of longer filenames (wider field).
  • Now run an hourly check on published service and “unpublish” any which aren’t really available.  Re-enabled services will be...

AREDN production release 3.22.6.0  is now available


AREDN production release 3.22.6.0 is now available.  This is the release you've been looking for :-)

Since the last production release, there have been 136 separate ‘pull requests’ in the AREDN github repository.   Those requests pulled these significant improvements and new features into the AREDN software:
1. The conversion from Perl programming to Lua is complete - the result is a significantly smaller, somewhat faster, code base.

2. Due to the recovered space in the image, tunnels are now always installed, so nothing needs to be done with them during future upgrades.

3. After this upgrade, future upgrades should be much more reliable, especially on low memory devices.

4. Tunnels will be prevented from accidentally connecting over the mesh.

Tunnels normally connect via the WAN interface, that being the point of the things. However, if the WAN interface on a node goes down for some reason (the tunnel server/client Internet fails) the node will select a new way to talk to the Internet by first routing over the Mesh. When this happens, tunnels could end up being routed partially over the mesh, which is bad because tunnels are also part of the mesh. So, we now prevent this by default by adding a firewall rule.


5. You can now adjust the poll rate for alerts....
