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 v2018.2.2 && 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.

Gluon 2018.2.3
Added hardware support
* TP-Link
- CPE210 v3
* Aerohive
- HiveAP 121
* Aerohive
- HiveAP 330
* TP-Link
- TL-MR3420 v5 [#noibss]_
.. [#noibss]
Device or target does not support AP+IBSS mode: This device or target will not be built
when *GLUON_WLAN_MESH* is set to ``ibss``.
* Fixes passwordless SSH access when gluon-authorized-keys was used without gluon-setup-mode. (`#1777 <https://github.com/freifunk-gluon/gluon/issues/1777>`_)
* Fixes ingress traffic shaping. A necessary kernel config value was not set. (`#1790 <https://github.com/freifunk-gluon/gluon/issues/1790>`_)
* Fixes the generation of the bootloader image for the AVM FRITZ!Box 4040. (`#1766 <https://github.com/freifunk-gluon/gluon/issues/1766>`_)
* Fixes the IBSS mesh on the GL.iNet AR750. The wrong driver/firmware package was previously selected. (`#1792 <https://github.com/freifunk-gluon/gluon/pull/1792>`_)
* Fixes the primary mac selection on the TP-Link Archer C25 v1. (`#1771 <https://github.com/freifunk-gluon/gluon/issues/1771>`_)
Other changes
* Linux kernel has been updated to either
- 4.9.188 (ar71xx, brcm2708, mpc85xx) or
- 4.14.137 (ipq40xx, ipq806x, mvebu, ramips, sunxi, x86).
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 Advanced Settings 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 promiscuous 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.
* Frequent reboots due to out-of-memory or high load due to memory pressure on
weak hardware especially in larger meshes
(`#1243 <https://github.com/freifunk-gluon/gluon/issues/1243>`_)
Optimizations in Gluon 2018.1 have significantly improved memory usage.
There are still known bugs leading to unreasonably high load that we hope to
solve in future releases.
