 ====== Choosing an OpenWrt Version ====== ====== Choosing an OpenWrt Version ======
 +The general method for picking the right image is to visit the [[:​toh:​start|Table of Hardware]], then search for your device. Supported devices will have a //Details Page// that gives instructions for installing the most recent stable firmware for your device.
 +If there isn't a Details Page or a pre-built image for your device, follow the [[doc:​howto:​build|Building OpenWrt]] instructions to build a custom image.
 +Any bugs in the firmware should be reported via the [[https://​​timeline|ticket system]]. Before reporting a new bug please first search for similar bugs.
 ===== Stable releases ===== ===== Stable releases =====

-The general method for picking the right image is visiting the [[:​toh:​start|Table of Hardware]], then matching the "​Platform & Frequency"​ of your device with the image you're downloading. ​ Sometimes, the "​Status"​ column will have additional information for your device, such as building its image or device-specific installation instructions.

 ===== Bleeding Edge ===== ===== Bleeding Edge =====
-The **trunk**, currently named "​Barrier Breaker",​ is where the current coding happens. The development branch ​contains everything from documentation to <color yellow>​**//​experimental//​**</​color>​ <color red>​**//​patches//​**</​color>​! It supports ​more hardware ​but also bugs and sometimes ​doesn'​t ​even compile. ​It can be built from sources:+The development branch (trunk), code named **Designated Driver**, contains bleeding edge source code for OpenWrt 
 +|{{:​meta:​icons:​tango:​48px-dialog-warning.svg.png?​nolink&​24}}| ​The development branch ​can contain ​experimental ​code that is under active development and should not be used for production environments. Bleeding edge OpenWrt ​supports ​additional ​hardware; however, it's considered unstable, ​and sometimes ​won't compile. ​
 +Bleeding edge can be built from sources:
   * [[https://​​browser/​trunk|Buildroot Sources]] ([[https://​​log/​trunk|Recent Changes]])   * [[https://​​browser/​trunk|Buildroot Sources]] ([[https://​​log/​trunk|Recent Changes]])
   * [[https://​​browser/​packages|Package Sources]] ([[https://​​log/​packages|Recent Changes]])   * [[https://​​browser/​packages|Package Sources]] ([[https://​​log/​packages|Recent Changes]])
-Or some limited ​snapshots are available, though it's highly advisable ​that you **check the dates on the files** before downloading them:+Alternatively,​ pre-built ​snapshots are available. The so-called buildbots are automated machines ​that run build scripts around the clock to keep recent snapshots available for install. 
 +|{{:​meta:​icons:​tango:​48px-dialog-warning.svg.png?​nolink&​24}}| ​**Prebuilt trunk images do not come with any web interface or GUI**. You will need to be comfortable using a command line and remote shell to install one yourself: [[doc:​howto:​luci.essentials|LuCI Essentials]] ​ | 
 +The bots build for most specific build targets (i.e. devices). For more information about the automated build process, see the buildbot page http://​​8010/​. The builds are available in the snapshot directory of the OpenWrt download page:
   * [[http://​​snapshots/​trunk/​|Snapshot Images]]   * [[http://​​snapshots/​trunk/​|Snapshot Images]]
-===== Older Releases ===== +While the build process is automated and is mostly functioning,​ it's highly advisable that you **check the dates on the files** before downloading them to prevent installing ​an outdated version.
-Please visit [[about:​history|the version history page]] for an overview of previous releases.+
 +If opkg is complaining that the packages list is too old, it is possible that the last few buildbot runs have failed for your platform and the packages are already a few days old. 
 +Buildbot also reports which packages fail to build, so that developers get feedback on possible errors. So when wondering why a package is not currently available in trunk, you could also check the "​broken packages"​ list for your platform.
 +E.g. for ar71xx: [[http://​​8010/​broken_packages/​ar71xx/​]]
