Batman-adv 2020.3 released

Added by Sven Eckelmann over 3 years ago

Aug 24th, 2020. Today the B.A.T.M.A.N. team publishes the August 2020 update to batman-adv, batctl and alfred! An additional hop penalty can now be configured on a per interface basis. Also several 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 (4.4 - 5.9)
  • coding style cleanups and refactoring
  • introduce a configurable per interface hop penalty
  • bugs squashed:
    • avoid uninitialized chaddr when handling DHCP
    • fix own OGMv2 check in aggregation receive handling
    • fix "NOHZ: local_softirq_pending 08" warnings caused by BLA


  • add per interface hop penalty command


  • synchronization of batman-adv netlink header

Happy routing,

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