    Asuswrt-Merlin 384.18 (current models) and 384.13_10 (RT-AC87U and RT-AC3200) is now available. The focus of this release was the merge of new GPL releases from Asus.

    384.13_10 will probably be the final release for the RT-AC87U and RT-AC3200, due to the GPL code of these two models being currently completely out of sync with the code used by the other models.

    Code:
    384.18 (28-June-2020)
      - NOTE: A number of changes for some models are not backward
              compatible with previous versions.  Downgrading to
              a previous release will require a factory default reset
              afterward in many cases.
      - UPDATED: Merged GPL 384_8563 for AX models.
      - UPDATED: Merged GPL 384_81918 for mainline models.
      - UPDATED: Merged SDK + binary blobs 384_81918 for RT-AC86U.
      - UPDATED: Merged SDK + binary blobs 384_81902 for RT-AC5300.
      - UPDATED: Merged SDK + binary blobs 385_20490 for RT-AC68U.
      - UPDATED: Merged binary blobs 385_20490 for RT-AC3100.
      - UPDATED: Merged binary blobs 384_81918 for RT-AC88U.
      - UPDATED: Merged SDK + binary blobs 384_8563 for RT-AX58U.
      - UPDATED: amtm to 3.1.7.
      - UPDATED: Root certificate bundle to June 3rd 2020.
      - UPDATED: OUI database used by the webui.
      - UPDATED: Dropbear 2020.80 (themiron)
      - UPDATED: nano to 4.9.3.
      - CHANGED: Optimized OpenVPN routing policy storage (this change
                 is NOT backward compatible with previous firmwares)
      - FIXED: ssh/scp client would fail to connect while negotiating
               a chacha20 connection (themiron)
    
    
    
    384.13_10 (28-June-2020)
      This release will most likely be the last release for the
      RT-AC87U and RT-AC3200, due to limited upstream support.
    
      - UPDATED: amtm to 3.1.7.
      - UPDATED: Root certificate bundle to June 3rd 2020.
      - UPDATED: OUI database used by the webui.
      - UPDATED: Dropbear 2020.80 (themiron)
      - UPDATED: Wireless driver from 382_52230 for RT-AC87U and
                 RT-AC3200 (should in theory address Kr00k)
      - FIXED: ssh/scp client would fail to connect while negotiating
               a chacha20 connection (themiron)

    Eric, can we consider this release as a present for Canada day for our routers :D

    Anyway thank you Eric, though Canada day is bit far but have a safe one.

    Is it 384.13_10, or _9 @RMerlin ? The beta thread referenced _9 in the title

    EDIT: Looks like _10 in the code, no worries! (updating YazFi to accomdate the nvram changes for VPN routing)

    Upgrade RT-AX88U & RT-AC3100 from V384.17 Final to V384.18 Final via dirty firmware upgrade. 30+ devices (includes gaming, streaming, downloads, etc.) and all appears to be working for main AX88U & backup AC3100 routers.

    For sub-revisions, I generally use odd numbers for beta and even for release.

    All working well here.

    Unrelated question, I use AiProtect, & haven’t seen any threats reported/blocked for 12+ months now.
    Previously AiProtect was very ‘chatty’, hundreds of blocks per day.
    Does it simply mean Skynet & Diversion are doing such a good job that there’s nothing for AiProtect to do?

    I had the same experience, nothing reported in AiProtect for several months. Last week I installed Suricata and it already logged 5 malicious IP addresses. Since then I turned off all Trend Micro stuff and installed Cake and Suricata to replace QoS and AiProtect.[/QUOTE]

    After dirty update to fw 384.18 my Diversion line of amtm shows some strange "-> v" as if there were an update available. If I manage to get rid of it the "->v" keeps coming back if I go to Diversion and come back to amtm. Anyone else?

    Code:
     1  open     Diversion     v4.1.12       -> v

    I'm not 100% sure, but could have to do with Diversions new WebUI option. There was an optional update recently that added this option under d - 10. Diversion WebUI options enabled

    I enabled the WebUI (d - 10), went to LAN - Diversion and updated from there but the situation remains.

    Okay so far on my AC88U after a dirty upgrade from 384.17 about 8 hours ago.

    I seem to have a problem with my AC88U on a dirty flash from the last stable with this firmware (384.18), the syslog is flooded with these messages:

    Additional info: Using a LTE USB Modem for cold standby WAN. Also there is an open nat menu without a icon now.


    EDIT: A simple hard reboot fixed all problems :D
