NEW ALPHA BUILDS date (2020-11-03)
Switched to the new 386 codebase. Models are going to
gradually be re-added to this new code base.
386 introduces AiMesh 2.0, finalizes the move to
OpenSSL 1.1.1 firmware-wide, adds a new speedtest
(powered by Ookla). For more details, please refer
to Asus's own release notes.
- NOTE: For developers, note that firmware code is
once again back on the master branch, with
both mainline and ax being reunified again.
- NEW: Added stub and stub-v2 compression options to OpenVPN
clients. Not added to server, since compression is
considered deprecated, and will be removed most likely
in OpenVPN 2.6, for security reasons.
- NEW: Added tls-crypt-v2 support to OpenVPN clients.
- UPDATED: Merged GPL 386_40577 (beta GPL from Asus).
- UPDATED: Openssl to 1.1.1h.
- UPDATED: Updated to OpenVPN 2.5.0. Note that OpenVPN
2.4.0 or newer is now required by the exported
client config file.
- UPDATED: nano to 5.2.
- UPDATED: curl to 7.72.0.
- UPDATED: zlib to 1.2.11.
- UPDATED: lz4 to 1.9.2.
- UPDATED: e2fsprogs to 1.45.6.
- CHANGED: firmware update checks are no longer using the
server address stored in nvram, for security
purposes. Devs who were using that nvram
should instead edit the webs_scripts/* to
use their own URL.
- CHANGED: The old legacy cipher setting is now only available
when running with static key authentication.
- CHANGED: Tweaks to the OpenVPN webui layout
- CHANGED: OpenVPN clients will now NAT all outbound traffic,
regardless of the source subnet.
- CHANGED: Reworked the display of DNSPrivacy presets
- CHANGED: Added AdGuard (ad blocking) and CIRA Canadian Shield
(non US-based service) to the DNSPrivacy presets.
- CHANGED: At boot time, OpenVPN killswitch will only be
applied for clients set to auto-start with WAN.
- CHANGED: Increased number of available mount points for addon
webpages to 20.
- FIXED: DHCP could fail to renew its lease with some ISPs when
Trend Micro engine was enabled (workaround provided
- REMOVED: Option to disable NCP. The NCP cipher list is
now used both for NCP and non-NCP endpoints.
- REMOVED: fq_codel support for Adaptive QoS. Due to a change
in how Trend Micro configures QoS, it is no longer
possible to intercept these to inject fq_codel.
Would you consider to add the download link to Merlin's Pre-Beta Test Builds (occasionally available), Thanks.
