AREDN Release Notes v3.20.3.0 – 27 March 2020


The AREDN team is pleased to announce the general availability of the latest stable release of AREDN firmware. We now fully support 70+ devices from four manufacturers. This diversity of supported equipment enables hams to choose the right gear for a given situation and budget.

AREDN firmware is now based on the most recent stable version of OpenWRT19.07.2 which was released in March 2020. This improvement is significant in that it enables AREDN firmware to benefit from the many bug fixes, security improvements and feature enhancements provided by OpenWRT developers from around the world.

The latest AREDN firmware contains features inherited from the newest OpenWRT upstream release (19.07.2). One important change is the inclusion of a new target (architecture) for the firmware, labelled “ath79”, which is the successor to the existing “ar71xx” targets. OpenWRT explains that their main goal for this target is to bring the code into a form that will allow all devices to run a standard unpatched Linux kernel. This will greatly reduce the amount of customization required and will streamline the firmware development process. As not all supported devices have been migrated to the new “ath79” target, AREDN continues to build firmware for both targets.  You may notice that the AREDN download page has firmware for these two targets, and you should select the latest...

The upcoming release of many new devices, bug fixes, and capabilities still has a few issues being worked out:

1) The OpenWRT release that AREDN is based on, recently published another release candidate rc2, and there is a rc3 in the pipeline. This means we are still days/weeks away to see the OpenWRT official release.
2) There are 2 identified issues so far on Rocket M5 XW and Nanostation M5 XW devices still being worked.
3) Many models do not yet have any know testing to confirm all is working.
