Batman-adv 2024.0 released

Added by Sven Eckelmann 6 months ago

Feb 1st, 2024. Today the B.A.T.M.A.N. team publishes the February 2024 update to batman-adv! batman-adv gained support for the new stateless, TVLV capable batman-adv multicast packet type. The originator of a multicast packet includes all destinations for this packet. The routers on the way will potentially split this destination list (based on the best next hops) and and forward for each chunk an adjusted packet to the best next neighbor. Also several bug fixes and code cleanups are included in this version.
