Batman-adv 2017.3 released

Added by Sven Eckelmann over 6 years ago

Sep 28th, 2017. Today the B.A.T.M.A.N. team publishes the September 2017 update to batman-adv, batctl and alfred! A long standing problem in batman-adv was fixed that could lead to an excessive number of TT management packets when devices disagree about the enabled flags of a device in the translation table. The memory usage of alfred was reduced slightly when it is used with --update-command and receives a lot of updates. Also minor bugfixes and code cleanups are included in this version.

As the kernel module always depends on the Linux kernel it is compiled against, it does not make sense to provide binaries on our website. As usual, you will find the signed tarballs in our download section:


Thanks to all people sending in patches:

and to all those that supported us with good advice or rigorous testing:


  • support latest kernels (3.2 - 4.14)
  • coding style cleanups and refactoring
  • bugs squashed:
    • fix TT sync flag inconsistencies
    • ignore invalid throughput values from wifi interfaces


  • bugs squashed:
    • Fix error messages on traceroute send failures


  • reduction of memory usage when using --update-command

Happy routing,

The B.A.T.M.A.N. team
