I have been out for a long while, and now I would like to resume my
libremeshing. I don't remember many things, and I see the website did
not change much.
Is 17.06 still the recommended version?
I remember when you wanted to precook binaries for your own network
there was this chef thing you could use. Is that thing still available?
I don't remember where it was.
I'd be happy if you could give me some updates on versions,
methodologies and URLs.

Subject: [Nodeshot] Goodbye Nodeshot, Hello OpenWISP 2

it took me a long time to recognize this, but the nodeshot
<https://github.com/ninuxorg/nodeshot> project is dead and I think it's
good for me to officially state my departure from it.
It's been an incredible experience and I want to thank everyone who
contributed and used it in the golden years of Ninux (2012-2017) and
I moved onto working full time (again, but this time with my own company
funded by my own consulting work) on OpenWISP 2 <http://openwisp.org/>,
which is also built in python and django (the first generation was built
in Ruby and Ruby on Rails).
Over the years I tried to migrate some of the features of nodeshot in
OpenWISP, especially those ones about monitoring the status of the
network as seen by dynamic routing protocols
<https://github.com/openwisp/openwisp-network-topology/>, but I was not
successful in migrating all the features because of lack of resources.
That said, OpenWISP aims to become a framework on which is possible to
build applications like nodeshot on top of it. The project is alive and
steadily growing, there are more users, contributors, companies that use
it and fund its improvement (see the activity feed to verify
<http://openwisp.org/activity.html>), so I encourage anybody that is
still interested in the ideas we were working in nodeshot and want to
contribute to see those come to light to reach us out in the OpenWISP
If anybody wants to maintain the code of nodeshot in its current form,
please get in touch with the Ninux organization administrators which can
give you write access to it.
I am pleased to announce that firmware version 1.2 for the LibreRouter
(and some other devices) was released! This release is a cocktail of
multiple fixes and new features.
