Internet-in-a-Box (IIAB) 6.5 (GitHub, download a pre-release) appeared on an experimental/rolling basis (master branch) for DIY contributors the day IIAB 6.4 was released on October 5th, 2017. It's likely to be released in late November 2017, possibly including the ability to install without Ethernet (over WiFi instead!)

Road Map as proposed during our October 9th & 12th, 2017 calls:

  • Mon Oct 5/9 - IIAB 6.5 cycle begins
  • Mon Oct 30 - Feature Freeze
  • Thu Nov 9 - Code Freeze
  • Mon Nov 20 - Expected Release
  • Thu Nov 23 - US Thanksgiving (4+ day long wkd begins, allowing many to try our work?!)

DRAFT IIAB 6.5 Release Notes have been posted.

Implementing "Captive Portal" functionality (for those who can't easily type URL's in a Latin script etc, similar to WiFi pages that appear when you connect in airports/hotels/restaurants) has proved very challenging. We could use assistance in this ongoing effort to get it right!

SOME OTHER PROPOSED FEATURES ARE LISTED IN THE JANUARY 17, 2017 MEETING MINUTES @ http://tinyurl.com/xsceminutes (and under March 16, 2017 @ http://minutes.iiab.io)

Please join our weekly Monday/Thursday calls to help push this forward -- educators and contributors of all kind are welcome:
