      - CHANGED: Push LAN domain to OpenVPN clients as DNS suffix
                 for the connection.
      - FIXED: Cannot save custom settings on OpenVPN server page
               on non-HND models.
      - FIXED: Some webui pages fail to load properly in French
      - FIXED: dnsmasq fails to start when certain options are
               configured (themiron)
      - FIXED: Non-functionnal Show Password option on OpenVPN/PPTP
               server page for RT-AX88U (removed)
      - FIXED: Persistent SSL cert was wiped at boot time in
               some specific scenarios.
    
    Asuswrt-Merlin 384.8 is now available. This release merges with GPL 384_32799, and also adds support for the RT-AX88U.

    Support for the RT-AC56U has been dropped. The RT-AC87U and RT-AC3200 are not available in this release due to the lack of updated release from Asus. The highlights:

    • Added support for the RT-AX88U. Feature support should be fairly similar to the RT-AC86U (which shares the same Broadcom HND platform), including the same limitations (no IPTraffic support for example). The RT-AX88U release is built from a slightly different codebase, so there might be some slight differences between that model and other models, until Asus eventually merges that model into the same general code branch as other models.
    • Removed support for the RT-AC56U. That model is now EOL by Asus, meaning they will no longer be releasing firmware updates (and therefore, no updated precompiled binary components, making it impossible for me to compile new releases).
    • Merged with GPL 384_32799 (384_4736 for the RT-AX88U).
    • Added LZ4-V2 support to OpenVPN
    • Added CleanBrowsing service to DNSFilter
    • HTTP (non-SSL) LAN port can now be changed from the default port 80
    • Updated components: dnsmasq (2.80-11-g59e4703), nettle (3.4), net-snmp (5.8), openssl (1.0.2q).
    • Removed watchdog from OpenVPN clients, as it would conflict with some more advanced configurations.
    • The FTP server can now reuse the SSL certificate used by your webui when enabling TLS. This includes Let's Encrypt.
    • SSL cipher suites were hardened/tightened a bit for the webui
    • Enhancements to the Wireless Log page, more details can now be provided on a separate popup.
    • httpd SSL certs were moved from /jffs/ssl/ to /jffs/.cert/ to be in line with Asus's own firmware.
    • Fixed a bug in curl causing some applications to crash on non-HND models. This fixes IFTTT and WTFast (which has been re-enabled, however remains untested)
    • Fixed UPNP refusing to forward ports if your WAN IP was a non-public one. This was caused by a change by the miniupnpd author. This change has been reverted in Asuswrt-Merlin.
    • Fixed dnsmasq and routing issues when running in non-router mode
    • OpenVPN clients will no longer have their download speed limited by the QoS upload limit when in Adaptive QoS mode.
    Please read the changelog for the complete list of changes.

    Dirty Upgrade AC3100 from V384.8 Beta2 to V384.8 Final. Cold booted the router as I required to shut it down for rewiring/electrical perspective, otherwise dirty upgraded was working properly. Thanks Merlin!!

    Dirty installation on an RT-AC86U from 384.7_2. Installation completed and router seems to work but data fields (such as SSID or Device name (LAN page)) are all blank - see attached picture. Have rebooted - same... Have re-entered data into a field - still shows blank.

    UPDATE - discovered that this is happening in Chrome - IE works fine...

    Yep, works just fine.

    Factory resets are still highly recommended for all major release firmware upgrades, but not mandatory.
