Sorry that you need to go through all the @viktor’s posts. I should need to do something about that. We should get back to the idea of this thread and it was about missing kmod-jool in Turris OS 4.x and it is included in Turris OS 5.0 as we are getting slightly offtopic. Some people are offensive. It happens and we need to live with that. People, who are satisfied are not usually sharing their thoughts.
It is a very interesting question. I’m convinced that if I would write anything, it will turn back to me at least on Twitter, haha.
We together pointed out Turris OS 5.0 is in testing. It is a huge step from us and there are not many differences as it was during Turris OS 3.x and Turris OS 4.x. To use it, it is simple. There is a command
switch-branch and it will do most stuff for you. There were found some bugs, but many of those are described in the long testing thread. Nothing that should prevent using regular things or what you expect from the router except not working dynamic DHCP clients related if you are using Knot Resolver as we introduced its update very recently. Affects just Turris Omnia, Turris MOX. Our fault and the fix is currently on review. Knot Resolver isn’t in OpenWrt for PowerPC, yet.
In some conditions as there was mention, there are some issues in DSL. We are not sure what it is causing it. It happens since Turris OS 4.0. We need to test it further. It does not necessarily mean that every DSL connection is affected. We don’t have Terminator from CETIN, yet and not many of us have DSL connection and it makes it harder for debugging.
Package ppp comes from OpenWrt as it is. As many those packages since Turris OS 4.0. We have patches in turris-build repository and our own feed of Turris OS packages and the rest comes as it is.
OpenWrt 19.07 has many packages updated if I compare it with OpenWrt 18.06. There could be some changes in configuration and some options deprecated. Before you are planning to do some changes than basic stuff, yes. I would try to jump on it. For example, I’m using it on a daily basis.
And once it is released, you can stay safe on HBS.
Hopefully, it will help you with your decision.
//EDIT: And before you ask, no. It was not me, who flagged @viktor’s posts in this thread.
