Dear friends, for your information.
Gluon is a freifunk-firmware in the german language space, and maybe around.
Freifunk Firmware Gluon
This is a german language site. The english i don't find. And why they
don't use also the Babel routing protocol, i don't understand.

today we have two new Gluon releases to announce: v2016.2.6, which will
likely be the last release based on OpenWrt Chaos Calmer, and v2017.1,
our first release based on LEDE 17.01.
We've decided to make a last v2016.2.x release in addition to v2017.1
due to one security issue (CVE-2016-10229), which fortunately doesn't
affect the default setup of Gluon, and a sysupgrade bug that causes x86
nodes to lose their configuration and return to Config Mode when
upgrading from older v2016.2.x releases to a LEDE-based image. THIS
MEANS THAT OLDER GLUON FIRMWARES SHOULD BE UPGRADED TO v2016.2.6 FIRST
BEFORE SWITCHING TO v2017.1 TO AVOID LOSS OF CONFIGURATION!
Furthermore, v2016.2.6 fixes some build issues.
The switch to LEDE 17.01 gave us a bunch of nice software updates and
new hardware support, and allowed us to greatly simplify the Gluon build
process. Other nice changes include:
* Localized status page
* Optional DNS caching on nodes
* Support for tunneldigger mesh VPN
* Fixes for crashs and race conditions affecting mesh setup
* Improvements to ath9k driver stability
For the complete, detailed release notes see:
Many thanks to all the contributors helping to get these releases into
shape ( https://github.com/freifunk-gluon/gluon/graphs/contributors ),
and also our testers who reported various bugs!
