Please refrain from using the `master` branch for anything else but development purposes!
Use the most recent release instead. You can list all relaseses by running `git branch -a`
and switch to one by running `git checkout v2016.1.3 && make update`.
and switch to one by running `git checkout v2016.1.4 && make update`.
If you're using the autoupdater, do not autoupdate nodes with anything but releases.
If you upgrade using random master commits the nodes *will break* eventually.

Gluon 2016.1.4
==============
Added hardware support
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
ar71xx-generic
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
* 8devices Carambola 2
* Meraki MR12/MR62/MR16/MR66
Bugfixes
~~~~~~~~
* Major update of all WLAN drivers
We've taken the unusual step of updating the WLAN drivers ("wireless-backports") to a much newer version, as
it was reported that the new version fixes unstable WLAN seen in many setups
* Build fix: a race condition causing parallel builds to fail has been fixed
* Build fix: the Gluon tree could get into a state in which all commands fail with "Too many levels of symbolic links"
* Build fix: allow building Gluon on systems with certain versions of *dash* as */bin/sh*
Known Issues
~~~~~~~~~~~~
* Default TX power on many Ubiquiti devices is too high, correct offsets are unknown (`#94 <https://github.com/freifunk-gluon/gluon/issues/94>`_)
Reducing the TX power in the Expert Mode is recommended.
* The MAC address of the WAN interface is modified even when Mesh-on-WAN is disabled (`#496 <https://github.com/freifunk-gluon/gluon/issues/496>`_)
This may lead to issues in environments where a fixed MAC address is expected (like VMware when promicious mode is disallowed).
* Inconsistent respondd API (`#522 <https://github.com/freifunk-gluon/gluon/issues/522>`_)
The current API is inconsistent and will be replaced eventually. The old API will still be supported for a while.
* Unwritable flash on some Ubiquiti PicoStations (`#687 <https://github.com/freifunk-gluon/gluon/issues/687>`_)
Gluon v2016.1.1 added support for Ubiquiti AirMAX devices with AirOS 5.6.x without downgrading AirOS first before
flashing Gluon. It was discovered that on Ubiquiti PicoStations, this downgrade is still necessary, as the
flash is not correctly unlocked, leaving the device unable to leave Config Mode and making regular sysupgrades
impossible.
TFTP recovery can be used in this state to flash a new firmware.

started with Gluon we recommend to use the latest stable release of Gluon.
Take a look at the `list of gluon releases`_ and notice the latest release,

e.g. *v2016.1.4*. Always get Gluon using git and don't try to download it
