T-Shirts everywhere!

July 9, 2020

Everyone loves swag. We do as well. On every conference people are always looking to get some T-shirts, buttons or anything with our brand on it. We even get requests from time to time on our support whether we can sell a T-shirt and send it around the globe. It would be possible in theory, we could setup a shop selling nice T-shirts, but we want to focus on our main goal - making updates to make your routers even better and more secure. Thus we decided to let somebody else help us with T-shirts and various other swag that we even haven't tried producing yet. Starting today, you can find official Turris swag shop on https://swag.turris.cz

Company behind it can produce various items and send them wherever you are. We hope this makes our T-shirts and other items much easier to obtain and you wouldn't have to wait for the next conference and travel to Europe to get a Turris pin for your new shirt.

 

Turris OS 5.0

June 8, 2020

We have released a new version of Turris OS – 5.0, which is based on the Linux distribution OpenWrt 19.07.3. The latest release of the operating system provides basic support for the WPA3 standard, which is, however, not set by default and requires the installation of additional packages. The big news is the gradual redesign of the Foris website (reForis). Currently, it is possible to set the snaphost integration in the graphical interface or redirection to a custom DNS server, which we have not set either.

With the release of Turris OS 5.0, we also prepared an experimental guide for migration from Turris OS 3.x. You can find the specific instructions in the manual available in our documentation.

Turris OS 4.0

Oct. 7, 2019

On 5th of October on biggest Czech open source conference, we released an important milestone in our Turris OS development - Turris OS 4.0. This release based on OpenWrt 18.06 spent quite some time in various forms of testing. It completely changes how we make our releases and we are now much closer to the upstream then we’ve ever been. Everything had to be rebuilt from scratch so it was a huge task to move away from the old way of doing stuff and we took the opportunity to get rid of some of the skeletons in our closets.

Because of that, some of the features available in 3.X might still not present in 4.0. But because 4.0 is the new main development branch, it also has some features not present in 3.X like Storage plugin with support for multiple drives and Nextcloud.

It is the system that is already available on Turris MOX and will be available on newly sold Turris Omnia as well. We are still working on automatic migration path from Turris OS 3.X, but we already have a pretty easy way how to reflash your router manually to Turris ...

Android app redesign

Dec. 22, 2018

Looking back at our current app, we found out that it wouldn't be that easy to extend and maintain it in the long run. At the same time, we were also facing quite some challenges in the backend part of the app. Originally we used netconf for our applications but that has proven to be more of a hindrance than a help. As the mobile app was facing big redesign already, we decided to go with the long-term maintainable solution and redesign the backend as well.

As we are making various decisions now, , we would like to ask you for feedback. What would you like to have in our new mobile application? What do you think makes the most sense, what is crucial and what is not. We came up with some ideas so we prepared poll from those, but you can enter some ideas of your own. Later on, we will evaluate that, publish the outcome and develop a new application that will be much better than the current one.

Send feedback via survey here.
