Please refrain from using the `master` branch for anything else but development purposes!
Use the most recent release instead. You can list all releases by running `git tag`
and switch to one by running `git checkout v2020.2.2 && 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.

See the OpenWrt advisory at https://openwrt.org/advisory/2021-01-19-1

- OpenSSL has been updated to 1.1.1k
Known issues
* Upgrading EdgeRouter-X from versions before v2020.1.x may lead to a soft-bricked state due to bad blocks on the
NAND flash which the NAND driver before this release does not handle well.
(`#1937 <https://github.com/freifunk-gluon/gluon/issues/1937>`_)
* The integration of the BATMAN_V routing algorithm is incomplete.
- Mesh neighbors don't appear on the status page. (`#1726 <https://github.com/freifunk-gluon/gluon/issues/1726>`_)
Many tools have the BATMAN_IV metric hardcoded, these need to be updated to account for the new throughput
- Throughput values are not correctly acquired for different interface types.
(`#1728 <https://github.com/freifunk-gluon/gluon/issues/1728>`_)
This affects virtual interface types like bridges and VXLAN.
* 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 Advanced Settings is recommended.
* In configurations not using VXLAN, 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 promiscuous mode is
