AREDN 3.22.12.0 Release

 
Since version 3.22.8.0 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     
  •    ...

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....

Link Quality Manager (LQM)

 

Thanks to recent developments by Tim KN6PLV, we are introducing a new tool to help manage AREDN networks.

Nightly Build 1265 contains a number of improvements broadly called Link Quality Management. It’s designed to make the AREDN network more stable and improve the available bandwidth. Tests with these changes have shown improvements from modest to close to 200% in link throughput, tested end to end with iperf3.

Automated Mesh Map

Our resident network mapper and AREDN developer Eric KG6WXC just published a page describing his mapping program. His Automated Mesh Map allows hobbyists who have experience in Linux/Apache/SQL to collaborate while gaining metrics in their desired nodes. It has a become a “go to” tool for monitoring the status of the networks. Groups who start setting up their own AREDN Networks also get a copy of the map to monitor their progress.
You can get all the details on his page at SkySilk Cloud Services User Spotlight.
