when comes the next stable release 19.x and when ends the deadline for pull request to add devices ?
My guess is that it'll be delayed to fix known bugs or at least somewhat....
It's ready when it's done!
April is a very aggressive target.
BTW it will have wpa3 support?
master doesn’t have a feature, it’s unlikely that an imminent release will.
WPA3, in particular, is dependent on hostap support, not to mention client support.
I thought it is already in master?
WPA3 support has been available in master for a few months now, just luci doesn't know about it yet (which means you can only configure it manually by editing /etc/config/wireless).
Who's responsible for the luci part?
Maybe you? This is a community effort.
Ps. there is a PR at least for some part of the needed functionality. You can also test that.
Yes Thx a lot!
19.03 will be branched next week. Hopefully it will be released end of March - beginning of April.
19.03 looks to be a more minor release, but cool everything is streamlined and only kernel 4.14 though. Here's to hoping it's a solid release on the mvebu target (using the WRT32X).
Now that Linux kernel 5.0 is out will everything move to that for the release after?
I hope not! The next Linux LTS kernel is 4.19, from what I understand. I don't see any 5.0 Linux being touted as LTS.
Some 5.x will be an LTS for sure. But the people always think that 5.0 is a more major release that 4.19
No doubt, but I try to avoid
.0.0 of anything for critical infrastructure.
With kernel that .0 doesn't mean anything. I is simple an ordinary next release.
Linus Torvalds says in https://lkml.org/lkml/2019/3/3/236
But I'd like to point out (yet again) that we don't do feature-based releases, and that "5.0" doesn't mean anything more than that the 4.x numbers started getting big enough that I ran out of fingers and toes.
I guess when "normal stable kernel releases contain 10-15 patches per day" there's not much point in demarking points of significant change.
There is completely no difference with 4.18 to 4.19 path and 4.19 to 5.0 path.
