Components

New features

  • Multicast/broacast frame forwarding with controlled flooding.
  • On-Demand HWMP (based on hopcount, not airtime link metric)

Known issues

  • Multiple links per peer are not supported. To avoid deadlocks that would result from this limitation, a 'CLOSE' mesh peer link management frame will close all links 'ESTABLISHED' with the sender even if link IDs do not match.
