Batman-adv 2018.3 released

Added by Sven Eckelmann almost 6 years ago

Sep 14th, 2018. Today the B.A.T.M.A.N. team publishes the September 2018 update to batman-adv, batctl and alfred! This release contains mostly bugfixes and code cleanups.

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 (3.16 - 4.19)
  • coding style cleanups and refactoring
  • enable the DAT by default for the in-tree Linux module
  • bugs squashed
    • fix segfault when writing to sysfs files under batman_adv/ with CONFIG_BATMAN_ADV_DEBUG enabled
    • avoid information leakage in probe ELP packets
    • adjust reference counters when queue_work fails
    • prevent duplicated entries in various lists

Happy routing,

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