AREDN Development Plan 2022


Following their recent code production release, AREDN has embarked on an ambitious development plan.  Here’s a basic overview of what is on their plate

Replace Perl code with Lua

The programming language for the user interface, services and many other functions is written in Perl.   The Perl libraries are very large and AREDN has embarked upon a project to replace it with Lua, a much lighter weight programming language designed to run in embedded devices.  

In steps, the team will update the “read-only” page to Lua: 

Main, Mesh Status, etc.

Then the read-write pages will be updated: 

  • Basic Setup     

  • Port Forwarding DHCP and Services     

  • Tunnel Server

  • Tunnel Client

  • Administration     

  • Advanced

  • Configuration

  • And some others

 

Resync with OpenWRT

Then the code base will be updated to OpenWRT 21.02.1.  Besides code enhancements and security fixes, it brings in:

AREDN® Release Notes v3.22.1.0 16 January 2022

 

The AREDN team is pleased to announce the general availability of the latest stable release of AREDN firmware.

 

This release includes many significant improvements in the underlying OpenWRT code and stability/scalability fixes to the OLSR mesh routing protocol.

 

List of Changes:

  1. The AREDN  simplified firmware filename standard has been changed to the default OpenWRT convention to leverage data files created at build time for future automation of firmware selection.

    When installing this firmware release, from prior firmware versions, you may get an error message similar to

    “This filename is NOT appropriate for this device.“
    “This device expects a file such as: aredn-3.22.1.0-main-ef2d605-ubnt-nano-m-xw-.*sysupgrade.bin”
    “Click OK to continue if you are CERTAIN that the file is correct”

    Ensure that you are loading the correct file by referring to the downloads page, then safely ignore the warning.   Once this release is loaded, this error message will never occur again.

 

  1. When the size of the hostname and service advertisements exceeded the size of a single network packet, only IP addresses would be known.  The...

Happy Mesh Year!   Yet another network test!


"PARDEN" the interruption!  October's Meshoween network test was so successful that, we've decided to celebrate with another one at the end of the year.  We'll celebrate New Nodes Eve and then Happy Mesh Year!

Seriously, this is an opportunity to stress the network again after the router storm mitigation patch has time to promulgate throughout the network.  Meshoween also revealed an issue with the performance of the Mesh Status page when the node count got high.  Both these patches were published in nightly builds in early November.  If your node's running a nightly build later than that, you should be good to go.   

The WWL - "World Wide Linkup" will start at 000Z on 1/1/2022  (afternoon of the 31st for the U.S.) and last at least 4 hours.  If you've brought up a tunnel that you don't normally use, feel free to drop it anytime after 4 hours.

So crank up those tunnels and be on the lookout for network wierdnesses.

AREDN Radio Selection

Steve KC0EUW produced a short video to help you select the right AREDN mesh radio for your needs. He explains the use of the Supported Platform Matrix to verify the types of suitable devices. Steve then walks you through the types of operational situations you may encounter. He completes the selection process by using the Device Selection Spreadsheet created by Andre K6AH to make well-informed choices about radios that meet your requirements.

You can view Steve's video here.
