    A small note: ath79 is the future. ar71xx will remain until the next release when everything gets ported.

    uClibc-ng is also not used except for the ARC target, which is only available with dev boards.

    WPA3 does not work with wpad-wolfssl but does with wpad-openssl AFAIK.

      Just updated 4 routers to the new release. I use stubby for DNS over https, hope to get this out of the box in the future, it is always some effort to manually upgrade this.

      Is there some real benefit in using WPA3 instead of WPA2? Didn't try it so far...

        What does this mean exactly?

            Right now, WPA3 is useful for backend, like 802.11s mesh encryption, for example. It just works.

            Is there any actual benefit in using stubby for DoH instead of https_dns_proxy? I've tried stubby before for DoT, and the latency was unbearable.

              openwrt is nice and their use of only foss drivers is great approach too, but for home router I prefer broadcom chipset and their propiretery .o blob files that come bundled with dd-wrt, great performance, great reliability, WiFi is great, it just works. Openwrt or pfsense doesn't come close, but they have their own uses.

                Finally, an official release. I have switched to ath79 many months ago by compiling my own versions from master... which I will continue.
                Has the great benefit of me being able to just compile the latest version with the software and configuration specific for my devices without having to reinstall/reconfigure anything after an update.

                  Well, I guess I didn't notice a real latency issue with stubby because I've used before the normal one of my cable provider, which was not the best either. Stubby provides DNSSEC in my config and it worked quite well so far, but I'm not able to compare this to other solutions.

                    ar71xx is an OpenWrt platform based on Mach files and is completely unsuitable for the mainline kernel. ath79 is DTS based, and is currently being upstreamed.
