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...

Beta Test Announcement

 

The Amateur Radio Emergency Data Network (AREDN™) Project Announces an Important Upcoming Firmware Release

 

On May 28th, the AREDN Project released to its team of volunteer testers, a new beta-version of its upcoming release, v3.15.1.0.  This is the most significant and important release since this development team introduced support for the Ubiquiti AirMax line of hardware back in 2013.

Here is a list of some of the new features:

  • Over the air, remote firmware upgrades – this allows node owners to upgrade a node’s firmware release without going out to the site.  It accomplishes this by saving the node’s configuration settings and automatically reloading them after the upgrade has taken place.
  • Support for NanoStation M5 with the new XW boards – many have purchased these devices unaware that Ubiquiti made a hardware change to the product which rendered it unusable with AREDN firmware… up until now.
  • Support for the Rocket M3, NanoStation M3, and NanoBridge M3 – This is our first release supporting devices in the 3.4 GHz ham band.  This band has no commercial allocations in the U.S. and as a result should be ultra-quiet.  We are excited about breaking into this band and what it could mean for this technology.
  • Expanded channel support:
    • 2.4 GHz now offers channels -1, and -2 !
    • 3.4 GHz offers 24 new channels from 3.380...
