Download release source code in gz tar ball


Open Wrt current stable release is version 18.06.1, where is the source file in tar ball gz for downloading?

The only source I can download is git clone, but I'd like to download and build stable release version.

You can clone it and check out the v18.06.1 tag, or you can select the tag on the Github site like this: and download the zip file.

See for detailed instructions about how to check out and build it correctly. You most likely won't get the external packages if you download it as a zip file and try to guess how to build it without following a guide.

How about navigating to the "14 releases" tab from the page you linked...
The releases page shows all the releases:

It shows the .tar.gz download .

Thanks hnyman and Per, great help.
