Hello everyone,

here is another status update about the coming 0.5.6-r6 release.

We had four other patches this week, which fixed several small problems with 
- John Hay found a bug in the dotdraw plugin which prevented normal usage
- Markus Kittenberg found a bug in his linux kernel cleanup patch, that 
exchanged "flat" and "non-flat" metric settings
- Yesterday we had a discussion that created two patches that fixed bugs with 
lq-multiplier and configurations with same IP on several interfaces. I don't 
like these two things, but at the moment we need them.

There are still two things in the pipeline for 0.5.6-r6 and I hope they will 
be available in the next two weeks, so we are delaying 0.5.6-r6 a little bit 
- we are close to supporting Debian/FreeBSD for Olsrd. With the help of the 
debian team I integrated a new platform into our makefile system and it 
compiled well. There are still a few small issues with makefile configuration 
and placement of config variables, but I'm sure they will be easy to solve.
- Markus Kittenberg is working on a netlink patch for linux that will allow 
Olsrd to get a notification when an interface goes down. At the moment if you 
switch an interface off and on very fast Olsrd will not notice and don't reset 
the routes.

The current stable code is changeset 1861, you will find it at

Feel free to test it. :)
