Release Notes for ZentriOS-WZ-3.5

ZentriOS-WZ-3.5 contains the following fixes.

A security patch for KRACK (Key Reinstallation Attack) has been applied.

Captive portal can now be enabled or disabled during web setup, using the new variable setup.web.captive_portal_enabled.

Automatic continuation frames are enabled for large writes to websocket client/server streams, using the new stream_write -c option.

Periodic UDP broadcast is now always enabled in web setup mode. See broadcast.interval.

A device now checks into the DMS each time it connects to the Internet, and each time it resolves a new domain. The check-in uses a lightweight protocol, with a low cost to device memory and processing. This allows the DMS to provide each customer with statistics and geolocation for all active devices. See dms.ack.enabled.

The maximum number of softAP clients is now 2.
