It is considered to be in maintenance mode since the end of 2014, don't expect new major features.

olsrd has its own page on the wiki. Network Framework

The goal of olsrd2 was to implement the new version of olsr standardized by the IETF. It is a complete rewrite of the codebase of olsrd which ended in the Network Framework. The framework allows the new codebase to be used by different projects more easily than the mostly monolithic code of olsrd.


olsrd2 implements the IETF RFC 6130: Neighborhood Discovery Protocol (NHDP) and RFC 7181: Optimized Link State Routing Protocol v2.

olsrd2 has its own page on the wiki.
