Hi all,

Olsrd version 0.4.4 was released today. The updates are mainly bugfixes
and added configure options. Multiple links between nodes should work
all right now. IPv6 usage is more configureable so one can control
the preferred address classes and set multicast addresses according.

The security plugin discussed on the olsr-users list has not been included
in this release as I have not had the time to test it properly. It will 
be included
in 0.4.5.

Please report bugs or problems to the olsr-users list!

Changes:

ROUTE CALCULATION

Routes are no longer added via neighbors declaring a willingness
of WILL_NEVER.

LINK SENSING AND ROUTE CALCULATION

Link sensing and route calculation has been updated to handle
multiple links between hosts in a sane way.

IP SPOOF FILTERING

IP spoof filtering is disabled on the interfaces which olsrd runs.
These settings are not restored!

ICMP REDIRECTS

ICMP redirect message generation is disabled on the interfaces
which olsrd runs.
These settings are not restored!

CONFIGFILE OPTIONS FOR MID AND HNA ADDED

Options to set the MID and HNA emission intervals and
validitytime in the configfile added.

IPv6 ADDRESS SCOPE

Option to set what IPv6 address type(scope) to use in the
configfile added. It can be set to either global or site-local.

IPv6 MULTICAST

Options to set site-local and global multicast addresses
in the configfile added.

EMISSION INTERVAL FUNCTION

Functions to set emission intervals at runtime added.

LINK LAYER NOTIFICATIONS

If started with the -llinfo switch olsrd will collect and display
link-layer information on neighbors. This is no longer limited to
one interface. But no action is taken based on this info - and
there is a upper limit of 8 neighbors from which this info can
be collected pr. interface. This limitation is inherited from the
WLAN drivers and is not something imposed by the olsrd code!

IPv6 HNA MESSAGE FORMAT

IPv6 HNA messages now contains 128-bit netmask instead of prefix.

PLUGIN FUNCTIONS

Added "packet transform functions" which allow plugins to alter all
outgoing OLSR traffic.

RESTRUCTURING

Moved most headers out of OS dependent directories. The tunneling
and link-layer notification interface is not yet seperated from
the /linux directory.

MANUALPAGE

A manpage(olsrd(8)) describing olsrd has been created. It is installed
when using 'make install'.


regards,
Andreas
