Anyone can say what features are coming in 386? Either via the features aren't NDA or you're a normal person and never signed an NDA

They haven't announced anything official yet, but a few new things have appeared in the 384 source code which aren't enabled yet, and may possibly be enabled for 386 (provided these features aren't dropped mid-development. It happens sometime, like Tor, or the ISP meter feature):

- DNS over TLS support
- 802.11 k/v/r support for Broadcom models (already partly enabled in 384_81xxx)
- OpenSSL 1.1 support
- OFDMA and WPA3 support for the RT-AX88U (already in beta, so maybe will be available before 386 launches)

That would be great. Would it be for any Broadcom radio that supports k/v/r?

I don't know which exact model or platform will get them in the end, I only know that it's getting added for some BCM models with the 384_81xxx firmware releases. The new build time flags seem to be specific to Broadcom so far, but that doesn't mean that Qualcomm doesn't have a similar feature, maybe it was already enabled. Someone with one of these devices would have to check with a tool like Winfi Lite.
