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.

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.
