The OpenWrt Community is proud to announce the eighth service release of the stable OpenWrt 18.06 series. OpenWrt 18.06.8 brings security fixes, as well as the usual device support fixes and core components update.

The main highlights of this service release are:

For more details, please see the detailed Changelog.

  • libubox regression: procd may fail to start or restart some services due to a regression in libubox (thread, FS#3177). This is especially visible as it breaks LuCI when upgrading from older 18.06.X releases: because of the regression, rpcd fails to start under some circumstances (empty rpcd section in /etc/config/rpcd).

Note that updates to the package feeds are available immediately to all minor releases of OpenWrt: there is no need to upgrade to a new OpenWrt image to install newer versions of a package. This applies to core OpenWrt packages as well as community-maintained packages.

As always, a big thank you goes to all our active package maintainers, testers, documenters, and supporters.

Have fun!
