wow .....very shocked to see this downloading now....

What a nice yuletide gift, thank you!

I see that the changeset 29599 didn't make it to final, do you know if that changeset has significant impact on ath9k stability?

Have the developers discussed the roadmap forward?

Will the development on the Backfire branch continue for a second release?
Or will a new stable branch be spinned off the current trunk in early 2012?

Excellent. Perhaps my wrt350n's (ath9k) wifi is now finally stable.

changeset 29599 seems to include some ath9k ,5k and mac patches wonder why they where not included

hnyman, there'll be 12.x releases based on trunk and most likely at least one more backfire release.

Thank you very much for this release! I have testet it since the release of 10.03. Nice present wink


Thank you. Nice to have this released, although I have just upgraded to trunk.

Nice X'mas present from  OpenWrt developer team, thank you for your hard work to make openwrt better and more better.

anybody knows, is there inotify function enabled in this release?

Thank you very much! And also congratulations. After almost(?) two years of RC status I wondered if it would ever happen. Merry Christmas to all of you, folks.

Runs well on TP-Link TL 1043..So fast !

I was using snapshots and it was stable for 3 weeks now.
A very nice router + fantastic software = WIN.

Default image works fine on TRENDnet TEW-632BRP.

OpenWRT team, Thank you for a great Holiday gift.

Thank you guys! It is great that you released this before the end of the year.

Well done.

LuCi sets the 'frag' and 'rts' settings in the wrong section in 10.03.1, previous versions (10.03.1-rc5) put it in "config wifi-iface" (correct, according to, but now it ends up in "config wifi-device radioX", which seems to break some WiFi functions.

Cool.  I tried upgrading from rc4 and enough broke that I just saved my config directory, reset and cut/pasted things back.  But a couple hours later everything is shiny.  So far it looks like it is worth the bother.  No bugs to report yet.

Thank you very much !
This fixed some wifi problems that I had with RC5.

A big thank to all developers. OpenWRT rocks.

In order to get the sources: Is good running "svn checkout --revision=29592 svn:// ./openwrt ."  I've run  svn:// and the revision number I get is different, what is the correct one?

Thanks in advance

Nope. In … fig-2.6.32

# CONFIG_INOTIFY is not set

Is there an "easy" way to either get a build with Inotify enabled (there was a bug opened/fixed that addressed that issue in the past, or have an asterisk18 build that has been compiled with the "--without-inotify" option (target ar71xx) ?

Will this version fix the WIFI issue when it just stops working?
