Batman-adv 2020.4 released

Added by Sven Eckelmann over 3 years ago

Oct 27th, 2020. Today the B.A.T.M.A.N. team publishes the October 2020 update to batman-adv and batctl! The bridge loop avoidance and translation table code received several fixes for bugs in connection with the multicast optimization. Which would otherwise potentially cause packet loss or even routing loops. Also several 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:


  • support latest kernels (4.4 - 5.10)
  • coding style cleanups and refactoring
  • bugs squashed:
    • fix incorrect reroute handling of multicast packets
    • improve handling of multicast packets by bridge loop avoidance


  • bugs squashed:
    • Fix endianness in ICMPv6 Echo Request/Reply parsing

Happy routing,

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