babeld-1.9.0 (unreleased)

  * Reworked buffering of unicast packets to use a per-neighbour buffer
    rather than a single buffer per interface.  This makes unicast as
    efficient as multicast, at the cost of slightly higher memory usage.
  * Added option "unicast" that allows sending most TLVs over unicast.
    This is necessary for the DTLS extension.
  * Reworked the xroute data structures to use binary search and
    linear-time comparison.
  * Don't attempt to modify the rp_filter sysctl if it already has the
    desired value; this makes it possible to run babeld in an
    unpriviledged container.  Thanks to Christof Schulze.
  * Reinstated logging of late hellos.  Thanks to Dave Taht.

    configuration interface.
  * Added the per-interface option rfc6126-compatible.

  * Fixed a read-only two byte buffer overflow in the packet parser.
    This is a read-only overflow, and hence most probably not exploitable.
  * Fixed an issue with creating unreachable routes on recent kernels
    (4.16 and up).  Thanks to Christof Schulze.
  * Notice interface changes faster by listening to more netlink events.
    Thanks to Christof Schulze.
  * Fixed a local interface issue when an interface has no link-local
    address.  Thanks to Christof Schulze.

  * Implemented parsing of mandatory sub-TLVs and unicast and unscheduled
    Hellos.  This makes this version comply with RFC 6126bis.  However, we
    don't send any of these yet, so this version remains compatible with
    RFC 6126.
Juliusz Chroboczek committed
48 49 50 51
  * Fixed a bug that prevented us from sending requests after we lose
    a route.  This makes convergence much faster in some cases, at the
    cost of slightly increased traffic.
  * Fixed interface addresses on some kinds of point-to-point links.
Juliusz Chroboczek committed

  * The keep-unfeasible (-u) option has been removed, this is now the
    default behaviour.

  * Added the ability to reconfigure babeld dynamically from the
    monitoring interface.  This is an incompatible change.
Juliusz Chroboczek committed
59 60 61 62
  * Changed the configuration language to use an enumerated type instead
    of the "wired" boolean.  This is an incompatible change.
  * Setting max-rtt-penalty no longer enables timestamps.  This is an
    incompatible change.
Juliusz Chroboczek committed

  * Added PF_UNIX support to the local interface.  Thanks to Julien Cristau.
Juliusz Chroboczek committed

  * Made it possible to have a 0 channel number within the diversity extension,
    which is consistent with draft-chroboczek-babel-diversity-routing-01.

  * Added the ability to choose the kernel routing table on a per-route
    basis.  Thanks to Matthieu Boutier.
  * Refactored the disambiguation code to live above the kernel interface.
    Thanks to Matthieu Boutier.
  * Reworked the source table to function in log time.
  * Optimised the disambiguation code to avoid scanning all routes in
    non-source-specific networks.  Thanks to Matthieu Boutier.
  * Modified the triggered updates logic to no longer send multihop
    requests.  This makes babeld slightly less noisy, at the cost of
    slightly longer reconvergence after mobility.
  * Increased the token bucket limits, which some large meshes are
    starting to hit.
  * Increased the size of the netlink socket buffer.

  * Added the ability to specify a router-id explicitly (-R).
Juliusz Chroboczek committed
99 100 101 102 103
  * Changed router-id computation to use all interfaces, which increases
    the chances of a stable id.
  * Changed the format of babel-state to only contain the seqno -- the
    validation of router-id was useless, and actually harmful when the
    router-id changed multiple times.

  * Fixed a buffer overflow in zone_equal.  This is probably not
    exploitable, but might cause incorrect routing tables in the presence
    of source-specific routing.
  * Added support for defaulting ipv6-subtrees automatically based on the
    kernel version.
  * Fixed compilation under musl.

    to some exotic interface parameters (channel and faraway).
  * Fix a bug that could cause some extra traffic at shutdown.  Thanks
    to Matthieu Boutier.
  * Under Linux, set rp_filter explicitly for all interfaces.  This
    avoids mysterious routing failures on distributions that set
    rp_filter by default.  Reported by Baptiste Jonglez.

  * Change the route selection algorithm to used a smoothed metric in
    addition to the "real" metric.  This reduces the amount of route
    flapping without any special case hacks.
  * New flag -r, use a random router-id.  This avoids temporarily
    unreachable nodes after a reboot when persistent storage is not
    available.
  * INCOMPATIBLE CHANGE: the local interface now announces the local
    hostname, and marks the end of the initial route dump.  (Thanks to
    Gabriel Kerneis.)
  * The local interface is now able to accept multiple simultaneous
    connections.
  * Detect BATMAN interfaces, don't assume they are wired.

  * Fix parsing of "channel interfering".  Reported by Gioacchino
    Mazzurco.
  * Correctly reset rp_filter to its old value at shutdown.  Thanks to
    Matthias Schiffer.
  * Work around a race condition that could cause us to fail to notice
    an interface's link-local address, and hence mark all neighbours
    as unreachable.  Reported by Gabriel Kerneis.

Juliusz Chroboczek committed
239 240 241 242 243 244 245 246

  * Made the resend logic less aggressive.  This should lead to fewer
    request messages upon link failure, at the cost of somewhat worse
    behaviour in the presence of heavy packet loss.
  * INCOMPATIBLE CHANGE: removed the idle detection functionality (-i).
    This feature was little used and complicated the code somewhat.
  * Various internal tweaks to bring babeld closer to the Quagga version.

Juliusz Chroboczek committed
248 249 250 251 252 253 254

  * Made the route table into a sorted array, and use binary sort for
    searching for routes.  This makes most route operations O(log n), at
    a slight cost in memory usage.
  * Changed the update sending strategy to use buffers large enough for
    a full update.  This makes the duplicate suppression mechanism
    effective in large networks, at a small cost in memory usage.
Juliusz Chroboczek committed
255 256
  * Rate-limit the reaction to wildcard requests.  This avoids an update
    storm at boot in large networks.

  * INCOMPATIBLE CHANGE: the update interval is now a per-interface value,

  * Retractions are now sent multiple times, which should speed up
Juliusz Chroboczek committed

    convergence in presence of packet loss.
Juliusz Chroboczek committed
438
  * Optimised the sending of updates to make them smaller.
Juliusz Chroboczek committed
439 440

    for extended periods of time.
Juliusz Chroboczek committed

  * INCOMPATIBLE CHANGE: reduced the cost of wired networks down to 96
    from 128.
Juliusz Chroboczek committed
453 454
  * Tweaked the frequency at which a router's seqno increases, to make
    it more likely that a feasible route will be available when needed.

  * Implemented the ability to automatically export local addresses (see
    the ``local'' keyword in redistribute specifications).  This should
Juliusz Chroboczek committed
470 471
    avoid the need to explicitly specify -X on the command line
    (Julien Cristau and Juliusz Chroboczek).
Juliusz Chroboczek committed
472 473 474
  * INCOMPATIBLE CHANGE: local routes (local interface addresses) are
    now exported by default.  Specify ``redistribute local deny'' to
    avoid that.
Juliusz Chroboczek committed
475 476
  * Babel will now automatically choose a router id if none is
    specified on the command line.
Juliusz Chroboczek committed
477 478
  * Automatically adapt to interfaces appearing or disappearing at runtime,
    as is usually the case when running over tunnels or VPNs.
Juliusz Chroboczek committed
479 480
  * Changed the link quality computation algorithm to not discard very
    lossy links.
Juliusz Chroboczek committed
481 482 483
  * Multi-hop requests will now be forwarded to an unfeasible successor
    under some circumstances.
  * Send multi-hop requests more aggressively.

  * Made jitter computation depend on how urgent a given message is.
    This dramatically improves convergence speed, without increasing
    network load.
  * Fixed a bug that prevented neighbour associations from being
    discarded at shutdown.

22 August 2007: babel 0.1

  * Initial public release.
