Olsrd 0.5.6-r8 released!

Hello everyone,

during the last months our plans for the OLSRd 0.5.6 branch changed a little
bit. Because of not enough people working on the project the 0.6.0 release is
most likely at least a year away. Because there are some features which are
necessary for the community at the moment, we will release two more 0.5.6
releases with new features.

This is the 0.5.6-R8 release. It introduce working options to set the source
and destination IP of the OLSR packets (both for IPv4 and IPv6) and a more
flexible handling config handling.

The config parser recognize a new section called "InterfaceDefaults", which
will (as the name says) set default settings for all interfaces (which can be
overwritten in the specific sections) and allow using multiple config files

Olsrd 0.5.6-r7 released!


after a few weeks of testing (and getting rid of an evil bug) we have released
0.5.6-r7 this evening. The mayor changes were some improvements in the ETX-FF
metric and new stabilization patches for the route generation.

olsrd 0.5.6-r5 released!

This -r5 release of olsrd in the stable branch is probably the last release in this branch series. Henning, Markus Kittenberger and Keks from Berlin have been debugging and hardening the source code base. This fixes many issues we saw in messy, real world networks. The last bug that hit us was an incompatibility with the mDNS plugin. This one had the effect that packets would be parsed incorrectly effectively generating random topologies on Avila boards *if* the mDNS plugin was active .

We highly recommend an update for a stable environment. We consider this version an improvement in stability.

Excerpt from the CHANGELOG file:

- HACK: MinTCVTime parameter hack for Berlin FF network...
feel free to ask on the mailing list.
- add Watchdog plugin
