Batman-adv 2018.0 released

Added by Sven Eckelmann 8 months ago

Feb 27th, 2018. Today the B.A.T.M.A.N. team publishes the February 2018 update to batman-adv, batctl and alfred! This release contains mostly bugfixes, code cleanups and documentation updates.

The in-tree version also got support for unicast batman-adv packets in the flow dissector. This can be used to spread the receive processing to different CPU cores with the help of RPS. Users of the out-of-tree module are advised to manually add the patchset to their target systems kernel.

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:
