    Asuswrt-Merlin 384.17 (current models) and 384.13_8 (legacy models) are currently available.

    I decided to issue this quick release due to recent security release for OpenSSL, and the fact that I don't expect to be ready for another major release for all models for quite some time. And since I was too lazy to branch out for a minor point release this should normally have been, I simply went ahead and pushed what work had already been done into this major release.

    This release primarily focuses on component update (OpenSSL 1.1, OpenVPN, curl, nano and dnsmasq). A pair of minor fixes were also included for the DHCP static lease page, and the firmware header for the RT-AC88U, RT-AC3100 and RT-AC5300 were also modified to work around a version check bug present in newer Asus releases (like the RT-AC88U 384_81790), where it would refuse to apply an Asuswrt-Merlin firmware image claiming it failed validation.

    Please keep discussions to this specific release. This thread will get locked down after a few weeks once the release-specific feedback will have died down.

    Downloads are here.
    Changelog is here.

    Thanks. It's something I had in mind during the initial development, but simply decided to put aside at the time and focus on the rest of the release instead. It's not perfect tho, I need to adjust the spacing to match the CPU meter below.

    Dirty Flash 384.17 over 384.17_beta1 on my AiMesh Router (RT-AX88U) + 2x AiMesh Nodes (RT-AC86U) with stock FW 3.0.0.4_384_81792, all seems good:
    • Stable Wifi: Using Fixed WiFi Control Channel & bandwidth (2.4GHz: Ch 11 20MHz, 5.0GHz: Ch 149 80MHz)
    • GUI Configuration: AiProtection, Asus DDNS (Let's Encrypt), OpenVPN Server (working with Tunnelblick (macOS Catalina) & OpenVPN Connect (iOS 13))
    • Scripts - Amtm, Diversion, Skynet, connmon, Unbound_Manager
    Thank You RMerlin:)

    Edit:
    • Run for a few hours without issue with Dirty flashing
    • I have just done full Factory Reset and reconfiguration just like to report that all seems to be running well:)

    Did a dirty flash on a AC68U from .16 to .17 beta1. Went smooth.
    Tested the OpenVPN with Openvpn connect for Android. Works fine with a speed of 24Mbps.
    Use OpenVPN together with DDNS with a Pixelsrv CA.

    Question: The Unbound DNS cache was cleared. Was that to be expected after doing the update?
    Thanks!
