Dear Turris users,
We are proud to inform you that we released Turris OS 5.1 in HBT (Testing) branch!
In this release, there you can find various features, which we prepared for you. We have been working on Sentinel, reForis, and several improvements.
Let’s first start with reForis, because we deprecated a few tabs in Foris to introduce package lists and options, and reForis and Foris are for now side by side installed by default. About package options, don’t hesitate and take a look at the Updater tab. Some of you here on the forum said that in various cases improved 5 GHz Wi-Fi if we are talking about stability and such. If you do, you can try different Wi-Fi drivers to see if it better.
We were working on a new data collection system called Sentinel as some of you already know. Since Turris OS 4.0 (which was based on top of OpenWrt 18.06) contained just a dynamic firewall, but now, you can find there EULA agreement in the standalone tab to use other features of Sentinel. There is a new version of nikola, which collects firewall logs and brand new minipots! More of it will be published in an upcoming blog post.
Anyway, if you are using Nextcloud, this update can be longer than usual. It may depend on the device, where you have installed Nextcloud.
Here is a changelog of Turris OS 5.1:
* Introduced new data collection system Sentinel * reForis (future default web interface) * Now installed by default * Added NetMetr, OpenVPN client, and remote devices plugins * Package lists * Expanded with labels and additional options * Added option to select alternative WiFi drivers * Nextcloud updated to version 18 * Removed old Device Detection based on Suricata
