Dear Turris users,
It is our pleasure to inform you that we released Turris OS 5.1 into the HBS (Stable) branch from the HBT :turtles: (Testing) branch. We would like to thank anyone who tested it during the development stage.
We were working on a new data collection system called Sentinel, improvements for reForis, and various changes. First, I will start with changes related to our administration interface. We deprecated a few tabs in Foris to introduce new improvements related to package lists and options, which you can now find only in reForis and which is installed side by side by default.
Also, we received several reports here in some cases that some of you experienced instability 5 GHz and that it was improved when you were using different Wi-Fi drivers, this can be now done without LuCI or SSH. In reForis, there is such an opinion now.
We were working on a new data collection system Sentinel since Turris OS 4.0 and in that version, it contained only a dynamic firewall, but now, there’s a EULA agreement to use some of Sentinel parts and this can you do in separate Data collection tab in reForis. There is a new version of nikola, which collects firewall logs and rewritten mini pots from scratch.
And there is updated documentation related to data collection:
https://docs.turris.cz/basics/apps/sentinel/#what-is-sentinel and in the blog post, which would be released soon there will be more details.
In this version, there is updated Nextcloud and this update could be longer than usual which depends on the device, where you have installed Nextcloud.

If you are using automatic updates, you will get this update soon. Otherwise, you will get a notification in Foris to approve this update. For technical support, please get in touch with our support department available on firstname.lastname@example.org, where we will also appreciate any feedback regarding this release.
