AREDN Announces Release of Second Beta, v3.15.1.0b2

 
On July 3rd the AREDN Project posted a second beta release of its upcoming v3.15.1.0 software.  It can be found through the Experimental Builds link on the Software Downloads page.  While you are encouraged to download it and report any issues, direct support for this release is currently only provided to AREDN Beta Testers.  Due to the potentially unstable nature of beta software, it should not be deployed in production networks.

If you are already on 3.15.1.0b01, then you can easily use the OTA (Over the Air) "keep settings" upgrade!  Joe (AE6XE) did his first 5+mile remote-over-RF upgrade and saved an afternoon and a long uphill hike (This was on a Ubiquiti 3Ghz node).  We've had some great feedback on the "part 97 only" channels where they have significantly improved link quality results

In addition, these are 'clean' image upgrades that minimize memory usage.  Whenever  'patch' files are used on nodes, this is a memory additive process.  In other words, a replaced file still has old file on the node in addition to the new the file.  These BOTH consume precious system memory.   The OTA upgrade, on the other hand, behaves as if you did a TFTP "clean" image load, but also pulls the config file settings across the upgrade!  It's a VERY COOL timesaver.

For those of you with tunnels, you will need to go into the Admin interface...

​AREDN at Ham-Com KG6JEI Presentation Video

A video of the presentation given by Conrad KG6JEI titled AREDN: The successor and future of BBHN at Ham-Com 2016 in Irving, Texas is available on the Internet. It was produced by Jason KC5HWB and is available on his website Hamradio 2.0 Live from the Hamshack. Jason did an excellent job of recording the talk.
