Do release candidate installations contain LUCI?

I know, that snapshots do not contain LUCI, but do release candidates contain LUCI?

I would like to install a rc-version on a TP-Link TL-WR1043ND v1.8, which uses 19.07.7

If a simple sysupgrade does not install Luci, I will wait.

Any idea when the stable version will be released. In summer, fall of 2021?

On is safe to assume stable release candidates will come with LUCI, given that Luci is part of the firmware. Why not give it a try?

WIthout Luci it will be not so easy to downgrade. This old device behaves a little bit strange, bricked another one for unknown reasons.

Looks good, very simple settings have been kept, like ssh-keys and hostname.

ssh root@

BusyBox v1.33.0 () built-in shell (ash)

It is not easy to downgrade from
21.02 to 19.07 with luci ether.

But luci installed or not isn’t that big of a deal since you already have a ssh uplink.

opkg update
opkg install luci

Then you have luci.

Or build a firmware with luci installed, then you always have luci.

But luci in rc1 does not have DSA support so it is kind of useless on some devices.
