Batman-adv 2019.4 released

Added by Sven Eckelmann over 4 years ago

Oct 25th, 2019. Today the B.A.T.M.A.N. team publishes the October 2019 update to batman-adv, batctl and alfred! The B.A.T.M.A.N. V implementation can now aggregate OGM2 messages into single messages before sending them out. As usual, this release also contains various 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:


  • support latest kernels (3.16 - 5.4)
  • coding style cleanups and refactoring
  • implement aggregation of OGM2 packets
  • bugs squashed:
    • fix length validation in netlink messages
    • fix out of buffer read when parsing aggregated packets
    • avoid race condition in OGM packet modification and submission


  • fix deprecation warning for option '-m'


  • fix build with musl

Happy routing,

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