So sorry, to hijack this announcement but hoping to get a little bit of attention for the broken QCA988x support. It's been broken since 17.01, didn't get fixed in 17.01.1 nor in this 17.01.2 release.
However it worked fine in 15.05.1.

Hello, many thx for great second service release!
I have question, are there plans to release legacy target also? I saw packages for i486 but no available legacy target yet.

Best regards

Not sure if this is a bug or if LEDE/OpenWrt just behaves this way when upgrading the firmware: I had two APs set up as "repeater bridges" using relayd (https://lede-project.org/docs/user-guide/relay_configuration) and both were working perfectly fine. After the upgrade to LEDE 17.01.2, neither one was working anymore. After some digging I found that the required packages relayd and luci-proto-relay were no longer present on the systems, which rendered the "repeater_bridge" interface useless.

I reinstalled said packages on LEDE 17.01.2 and set up the "repeater_bridge" interface again. Now everything is working just like it did before ...

So, careful with the upgrade if you are using the relayd-setup!

This is what the interface should look like:

And this is what the interface does look like after the upgrade from LEDE 17.01.1 to 17.01.2:
