Releases

qMp is in constant development and new features and improvements are constantly being added. This page summarizes the available qMp releases.

Stable

  • qMp 3.2.1 Clearance: the current qMp stable version. It was released on the 22nd June 2016. It is based on OpenWrt Chaos Calmer 15.05.1, with a stable version of the BMX6 protocol.

For deploying new nodes or long-term infrastructure, the stable release is recommended.

Development

There are two development versions, which are often updated, and include the latest features and changes:

  • qMp testing is the testing version of qMp, codenamed Kalimotxo, where new features are tested prior to adding them to the stable release. It is based on LEDE Reboot 17.01 and includes a stable version of the BMX6 protocol and any feature under development.
  • qMp trunk is the development trunk version of qMp, codenamed Kalimotxo. It has the same features as the testing version but it is based on the newest, bleeding edge LEDE trunk and includes the development versionof the BMX6 protocol. This version may support the newer devices but it may be broken at some times.

Usage of the testing or experimental branches is only suggested for advanced users, as they may contain broken features or it may take some extra time to make them work.
