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.
