-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
A new snapshot, `0.0.20171221`, has been tagged in the git repository.
Please note that this snapshot is, like the rest of the project at this point
in time, experimental, and does not consitute a real release that would be
considered secure and bug-free. WireGuard is generally thought to be fairly
stable, and most likely will not crash your computer (though it may).
However, as this is a pre-release snapshot, it comes with no guarantees, and
its security is not yet to be depended on; it is not applicable for CVEs.
With all that said, if you'd like to test this snapshot out, there are a
few relevent changes.
== Changes ==
* keygen-html: remove prebuilt file
This follows our mailing list discussion.
* wg-quick: add the "Table" config option
In collaboration with Luis Ressel, wg-quick(8) grew an option! We generally
do not like to add things to wg-quick or allow feature-creep, but this was
basic enough and mostly involves disabling functionality. Specifically,
wg-quick now accepts a Table= parameter with these semantics:
~ Table=auto (default) selects the current behaviour
~ Table=off disables creation of routes from allowed ips altogether
~ All other values are passed through to "ip route add"'s table option
This should enable people to do basic policy routing. It also matches the
functionality provided by LEDE/OpenWRT's uci config as well as NixOS's
* wg-quick: dumber matching for default routes
* crypto: compile on UML
UML allows you to compile a Linux Kernel as a standalone ELF binary that runs
within normal Linux. WireGuard can now be compiled as a normal Linux program,
runnable on Linux, which is useful for the test suite... and other things.
* compat: kernels < 3.13 modified genl_ops
This fixes a rather important bug with 3.10, 3.11, and 3.12 kernels, where in
some cases, gcc failed to de-constify a struct that was marked as const when
it should not have been on on these older kernels, triggering an oops at
module insertion time.
