This is a very exciting release, as this release migrates the ChirpStack Gateway OS from Yocto to OpenWrt. Thanks to LuCI and the UCI configuration system it is now possible to configure the provided ChirpStack components as well things like network configuration through a web-interface instead of a CLI. This release also splits the packages from the ChirpStack Gateway OS configuration such that these can be integrated in other OpenWrt based projects. Main features that this release brings:
There is no need to configure the ChipStack Gateway OS using a terminal. Powered by LuCI), the ChirpStack Gateway OS now provides an easy-to-use web-interface to configure ChirpStack components and system configuration.
Through the web-interface (and cli) it is possible to install additional software using the OpenWrt package repositories. This has been requested several times, but until now would require to compile a custom ChirpStack Gateway OS image which would take several hours to complete.
- Update ChirpStack to v4.4.3.
- Update ChirpStack Concentratord to v4.2.3.
- Update ChirpStack UDP Forwarder to v4.1.2.
