-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
A new snapshot, `0.0.20190702`, 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 constitute 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 relevant changes.
== Changes ==
* curve25519: not all linkers support bmi2 and adx
This should allow WireGuard to build on older toolchains.
* qemu: show signal when failing
This was useful in tracking down upstream armeb bugs such as:
* wg-quick: darwin: support being called from launchd
We now ship a sample launchd file, for folks who would like to run WireGuard
on macOS servers with some form of automation. Most users are still advised to
use the GUI app from the App Store.
* compat: some kernels weirdly backport prandom_u32_max
* compat: unify custom function prefix/suffix
* compat: rhel backported list modifications
Usual maintance of our compat layer for existing platforms and kernels.
* compat: support RHEL8's skb_mark_not_on_list backport
We now support RHEL8/CentOS8's kernel.
* global: switch to coarse ktime
Our prior use of fast ktime before meant that sometimes, depending on how
broken the motherboard was, we'd wind up calling into the HPET slow path. Here
we move to coarse ktime which is always super speedy. In the process we had to
fix the resolution of the clock, as well as introduce a new interface for it,
landing in 5.3. Older kernels fall back to a fast-enough mechanism based on
* netlink: cast struct over cb->args for type safety
This follow recent upstream changes such as:
* peer: use LIST_HEAD macro
* receive: queue dead packets to napi queue instead of empty rx_queue
This mitigates a WARN_ON being triggered by the workqueue code. It was quite
hard to trigger, except sporadically, or reliably with a PC Engines ALIX, an
extremely slow board with an AMD LX800 that Ryan Whelan of Axatrax was kind
enough to mail me.
