3.3rc5-1 is out at:


This was the first time I've had a chance to try to actually deploy
cero as the main router in a production environment (esr's) in quite
some time. Enough problems cropped up for me to recommend against
doing that at this point, although I am writing this email through it.

I did get some good data on how FIOS works (short summary: it's *hard*
to stress out fios)


Kernel 3.3rc5 + 83 patches to get it closer to rc6
gpsd 3.4+ package (from git head, trying to fix a PPS problem)
bind9.9.0 (released version)
dibbler-client (git head, fixing a crash with multiple interfaces)

A couple bugs have crept in due to bitrot, some of which I've bug
reported. The most severe appears that I have a problem with
power-save and crypto at 2.4 ghz in this (trouble with an android
phone, and the like)

firewall: syntax has changed, rules notably re ipv6 have changed,
all kinds of problems with multiple interfaces
6to4: distributing 6to4 addresses onto interfaces didn't work
ipv6: radvd doesn't always manage to distribute an address
(multicast? client side problems?) - usually crops up on more modern
wireless interfaces
ipv6: dibbler-client eats 100% of cpu after being idle overnight
ipv6: dibbler-client wants to 'own' radvd
bind9: needs allow-recursion

I'm pretty sure that most of these bugs have existed in prior releases, with the
exception of the wireless power save one... which was kind of hard to trigger.
