DO NOT flash this beta release unless you understand the risks involved and specific device recovery methods.
Avoid discussions! Create threads for questions, general problems or use search; this thread is not for support.

CLI Flash: 'cd /tmp' then 'wget {file URL}' (or 'curl -k {file URL} -o {file}') with http (not https) or ftp. Then 'write {file} linux'.

Repository: Trac SVN changelog since last build r45036 (GitHub mirror)

Notes:
• CVE-2019-14899 VPN fix (applicability depends on VPN setup) and GUI toggle. 6920, 6928, 6931, 6932 (WIP 7040)
In-kernel Samba has been implemented this year and default min/max versions have changed 6954, 6957, with WSD support.
• VAP issue is fixed! For any Wireless Mode, create a VAP and both ath0/ath1 should now function properly.
• Local DNS option removed from Services->DNSMasq in changesets 43080 and 43081; ref: #7092
• DHCP and DNS help (English) updated in 43083; ref: #7091
• WireGuard 1.0.20200908 & Tools: PBR, Kill Switch, Inbound Firewall, Naming of Peers, Status, Key, Guides. Thanks BS & egc!
• OpenVPN Version 2.5.0

Issues:
• There may be remaining issues for Samba (for example NTFS), with frequent updates.

Important:
• If reporting issues provide applicable info: 'dmesg', 'cat /tmp/var/log/messages', syslog, serial output, strace, tcpdump etc.
• For firewall NAT or WAN issues provide 'iptables -vnL', 'iptables -t nat -vnL', 'iptables -t mangle -vnL' and the /tmp/.ipt file.
• Search existing SVN tickets before opening a new one. Before reporting, reset and manually setup (no nvram backup).
• Be sure to include operating and wireless modes (Gateway, AP, CB, etc.) along with relevant configuration information.

Router/Version: Netgear 7800

File/Kernel: DD-WRT v3.0-r45073M std (12/21/20), Linux 4.9.248 #939 SMP Mon Dec 21 06:35:27 +07 2020 armv7l

Previous/Reset: DD-WRT v3.0-r45036 std (12/18/20),
Linux 4.9.248 #932 SMP Fri Dec 18 01:29:43 +07 2020 armv7l

Mode/Status: Gateway / AP
Issues/Errors:

Dec 21 17:29:06 PANDA-WRT-1 daemon.err dnsmasq[3643]: failed to send packet: Address family not supported by protocol
Dec 21 17:29:12 PANDA-WRT-1 daemon.err dnsmasq[3643]: failed to send packet: Network unreachable

These message started with r45036, not sure where to start looking. I flashed back a few versions (r44863) and reset from scratch because of the ath0/wlan0 changes and messages do not appear. But other than the logs filling up I have had no issues with performance (that I know of) with last two builds.

Other issue (it has been many previous builds) which not sure why, but when I try to copy a directory or multiple files from PC to USB attached hard drive on router they will not copy. If I select one file at a time and copy no issues. No errors showing in logs or from PC (Win10) it just seems to complete instantly and nothing shows up on USB drive. Annoying, but once I put anything on USB drive is does stream correctly to other connected devices. I just pull USB drive from router and connect directly to PC to copy the files over no problem.

Thanks BS, team, and Forum support for your great builds and help!

An M appended to the build number used to denote a build by Kong ...
A Merry Christmas build, perhaps Wink

Upgraded my R7800 in blind trust from the previous version and it runs fine.

There's a new GUI page SYSCTL ... looks like something diagnostic and temporary, very long.

No problems copying multiple files between Linux Mint laptop and USB thumbdrive SMB share on router in either direction ...

On the r45xxx builds, I'm finding that photos load slower in Firefox.
If I go back to r44786, the wifi signal on my Acer laptop is much weaker.
For me, r44980 seems to be the sweet spot.

When trying r447** builds with the previous driver be sure to reset and reconfigure from scratch,

or use a backup config created from same build, otherwise lost wireless settings and other things broken.

I have the opposite experience, as Signal or RSSI is about 10 lower on newer builds after r44786.

I think the RSSI issue is heavily influenced if it's 9980 or 9984 series.

For 9984 series routers (R7800 & R9000 mostly) the signal should be better on builds >=44980.

For 9980 series there are a few revisions of this chip, afaik, and it seems the C7v2-v4 have issues. I didn't notice any issues on the C7v5/A7v5 series for Rssi.

I haven't paid attention to the EA8500 to know for sure.

Archer C7/A7 series is different hardware, though QCA chip naming is confusing at times (9880 for example).

Change in reported RSSI values is regarding EA8500, or 9980 (99X0) only. Sorry if my words are misleading.
