Get it at:


+ all known instruction traps killed
+ build almost entirely replicatable now
+ package set almost equivalent to pre 3.10.28 releases
+ squid added as an optional package
+ dnssec support for dnsmasq enabled by default
+ ohybridproxy, mdnsresponder, mdnsd packages optional, not very usable
  frankly, sorting this out is going to take a meeting at ietf homenet
+ ipv6 tunneling at the same time as native fixed
+ multiple routing bugs squashed
  (but not clear if default routes are right)
+ pie v4 and ns2/Xfq_codel re-incorporated
+ some sctp support added
+ pimd apparently fixed (tested with uftp, pimd -r)
+ fixdaemons script obsoleted
+ upnpd and natpmp hopefully mostly fixed
+ usb filesystems tested
+ gpsd 3.10 (pushed to openwrt also)
+ sysupgrade was fixed a few releases back
  (please use sysupgrade -n on this release and get a fresh config)
+ jffs2 version produced (untested)

A huge thanks for the timely intervention by multiple googlers in
donating some badly needed compute resources. A thanks also to
Sebastian for some new SQM work, Gabor Juhos for finding the last
instruction traps (and blogic/cyrus for fixing it), Simon Kelly for
continuing to make dnsmasq great(er), Toke for beating up dnssec,
#openwrt, #bufferbloat...

... and all you lovely, patient, users.

The negatives are few, minor, but pesky.

- package signing still broken
- could use an update to shaperprobe for mlab support
- No nsec3 support in dnssec
- probable issues with ntp time fetching verses dnssec
- no procd support for babeld
- no bcp38
- concerned about missing usb and 3g device functionality
  anybody got a HUWEI device?
- if you have dns issues please share them here.
  dnssec can be disabled via commenting out two lines
  we also still have issues in using dns with multiple
  upstreams. Fixes in pipeline.
- concerned about other source specific routing issues
  particularly interop with tinc, openvpn and strongswan,
  and what happens when interface ipv6 addrs change
- need to benchmark and improve wifi some more
- should probably switch to pre-compiling luci web interface
- haven't looked into ht40+ issues (HT20 is pretty good)
- needs to stay UP for a while before I'm willing to freeze

Not a lot of this really matters...

I'm hoping this is the best release we've had since
the comcast disasters. Go forth and test.

I HAVE NOT tested it as a home gateway. I will try to do so before
saturday. Feel free to beat me to it.

I will try to get out *one* more release before I leave for Britain
next week.
