 Please refrain from using the `master` branch for anything else but development purposes!
 Use the most recent release instead. You can list all releases by running `git tag`

 If you're using the autoupdater, do not autoupdate nodes with anything but releases.
 If you upgrade using random master commits the nodes *will break* eventually.

+Gluon 2017.1.5
+==============
+
+Added hardware support
+~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
+
+ar71xx-generic
+^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
+
+* TP-Link TL-WR1043N v5
+
+ramips-mt7621
+^^^^^^^^^^^^^
+
+* Ubiquiti EdgeRouter-X
+* Ubiquiti EdgeRouter-X SFP
+
+
+Bugfixes
+~~~~~~~~
+
+* Fix build with empty ``site/modules``
+  (`#1262 <https://github.com/freifunk-gluon/gluon/issues/1262>`_)
+
+* Fix Ethernet stalls at high throughput on certain devices
+  (`#1101 <https://github.com/freifunk-gluon/gluon/issues/1101>`_)
+
+* Update Tunneldigger to support connections with servers running newer kernel
+  versions (`9ed6ff752eb7 <https://github.com/freifunk-gluon/gluon/commit/9ed6ff752eb7972d90b138197641f12eeb4572fb>`_)
+
+* Fix batman-adv Bridge Loop Avoidance (BLA) with *gluon-ebtables-filter-multicast*
+  (`#1198 <https://github.com/freifunk-gluon/gluon/issues/1198>`_)
+
+
+Known issues
+~~~~~~~~~~~~
+
+* Default TX power on many Ubiquiti devices is too high, correct offsets are unknown (`#94 <https://github.com/freifunk-gluon/gluon/issues/94>`_)
+
+  Reducing the TX power in the Advanced Settings is recommended.
+
+* The MAC address of the WAN interface is modified even when Mesh-on-WAN is disabled (`#496 <https://github.com/freifunk-gluon/gluon/issues/496>`_)
+
+  This may lead to issues in environments where a fixed MAC address is expected (like VMware when promicious mode is disallowed).
+
+* Inconsistent respondd API (`#522 <https://github.com/freifunk-gluon/gluon/issues/522>`_)
+
+  The current API is inconsistent and will be replaced eventually. The old API will still be supported for a while.
+
+* Sporadic segfaults of busybox (ash) when running shell scripts on ar71xx
+  (`#1157 <https://github.com/freifunk-gluon/gluon/issues/1157>`_)
+
+  The workaround added in Gluon v2017.1.1 has greatly reduced the frequency of
+  segfaults, but it did not make them disappear completely.
+
+* Frequent reboots due to out-of-memory on weak hardware in larger meshes
+  (`#1243 <https://github.com/freifunk-gluon/gluon/issues/1243>`_)
